Spotty, drenching thunderstorms will continue through the second half of the weekend across the South following Saturdays scattered storms.
These kind of storms are typical for June with a south-to-southeasterly flow ushering warm, humid air across the region. The pattern will bring a mixture of clouds and sunshine from Florida to North Carolina, westward to Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.
While much of Sunday will be rain-free, the pattern will favor pop-up thunderstorms. Some areas can be hit by a few of these pop up storms, while other locations just see a close call.
Because of the slow-moving nature of the storms, there is the potential for localized heavy rainfall, which in-turn will raise the threat of flash, urban and lowland area flooding.
A handful of the storms can become quite strong for a few hours, especially late in the day. These storms can bring isolated damaging wind gusts and frequent lightning strikes.
Folks spending time outdoors today are advised to keep an eye out for changing weather conditions, especially during the afternoon and early evening.
Never drive through a flooded roadway. Doing so not only puts you and any occupants at risk, but also your would-be rescuers.
