Few t-storms possible Tuesday

Severe threat staying away for the day

With the upper level ridge in place for Tuesday, we’ll be hot and humid once again with highs back in the lower 90s. Couple the heat with dew points back around 70 degrees during the afternoon, it’ll feel like the middle to upper 90s all across the area. While the heat and humidity could drive a few random t-storms for the afternoon, those rain chances are looking fairly slim and they’ll want to stay below severe levels. Any severe threat across the country will stay near an upper-low to the northwest and another wave across the northeast. A deep upper-level wave in the northwest and a frontal system will drive a marginal to slight severe weather threat for the eastern Dakotas and northeastern Nebraska for Tuesday afternoon and evening. The primary threats with the strongest t-storms will be damaging wind gusts and large hail. A marginal risk has also been outlined for parts of the Tennessee Valley and the Carolinas due to t-storms Tuesday afternoon and evening that could be capable of some high wind gusts.
