An active weather pattern will continue for the majority of the week. Depending on where you are located in the state you may get a break come the middle of the week, otherwise, showers and thunderstorms are expected for one of the top headlines. There is the potential for the southern half of the state to see a few non-severe thunderstorms later tonight, but that could change between now and then since there is a marginal risk at this time. Storm development will be moving in from South Dakota and as convection moves northward it will be moving into a moist environment — allowing for the storms to occur. Memorial Day will also have a chance at off and on showers and thunderstorms throughout the day and highs will be in the 70s with a few 80s. For Monday, there is a slight risk of severe weather for the extreme southern portion of the state. Large hail and damaging winds will be the biggest threats. As the storms develop stay with the KX Storm Team for further updates and we will keep you ahead of the storm.
