Based on Thursday’s RPM model data, we’ll likely see two waves of storms. The early line would roll through around sunrise on Sunday. Even through instability would be lacking at that time, strong winds in the atmosphere could drive a damaging wind threat. The first wave should clear the area by mid-morning.

If skies clear after the first round of storms, another batch could form by the afternoon. Lingering clouds or rain from the morning showers would reduce the severe weather risk in the afternoon. If you have outdoor plans on Sunday, you should have an alternate worked out if storms threaten. Keep an eye on the sky.
