A few gusty thunderstorms pushed through last night but today the action should be a bit more widespread!  The Storm Prediction Center has once again placed the region under a slight risk for severe weather with damaging wind gusts, hail and an isolated tornado possible. By tomorrow the front will push east and shower chances will decrease. A couple of showers are not out of the question over the weekend, but will be less numerous. While the heat won’t be as intense the humidity lingers into the start of next week. Stay cool and have a great day!

Lightning is one of the biggest weather killers and in the summer months is at its worst. So far this year in the U.S., 7 people have been killed by lightning, which is good stating that the 30-year average is 53. The threat still remains though, as lightning can be a killer even if the sky overhead is blue.  Learn more here in Alex Liggitt's latest blog which includes an excerpt from last week's Severe Weather Special!
