Large Hail, Damaging Winds Threaten Region Before Warm Temps Return

If we stay patient through the beginning of this week, we will be rewarded with sunshine and temperatures at or near 70 as the week ends.

The National Weather Service, though, indicated Sunday that large hail and strong winds may threaten the region first, starting Monday.

A low pressure system will bring showers and some thunderstorms to the area late Sunday night into Monday. Depending on how much moisture is pulled from the Gulf of Mexico by this system, another round of moderate to heavy rain could be possible. 

Additionally, if enough instability develops, some of these storms could become severe by Monday afternoon with the main threats being large hail and damaging winds, the NWS reported.
