through the early morning hours. Fog could become locally dense in

Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop over the northeast
plains this afternoon before diminishing this evening. A few
storms could become severe today with large hail, damaging winds
and heavy rain. Rainfall rates up to 2 inches in less than an hour
may lead to localized flooding. Thunderstorm coverage will be more

warm back into the lower 90s across the plains.

potential for heavy rainfall.

for Monday into Tuesday. Scattered gusty thunderstorms coverage
can be expected, however severe weather is not expected either
