Yesterday scattered showers and thunderstorms were more widespread across the lower and mid-elevation locations of the forecast area.
If you liked yesterday, you will like today. CAPE values are going to be higher than yesterday, and PWAT values will be similar to yesterday.
Here are the CAPE values from 9 am through 11 pm this evening. These CAPE values are going to be tied for the highest values of the year.
High pressure has wobbled a bit and the result will be storm motion from southeast to northwest. This is a bit unusual for us. It will be interesting to see which areas do the best with this southeast flow.
Tuesday we should see a slight uptick in storm coverage across the forecast area. Monsoonal flow should kick in late Tuesday night through at least late Thursday night. Afternoon storms will continue to dominate the forecast through the weekend.
Next update Wednesday, thanks for following and supporting the site!
