Here's a timeline for showers and storms today: Through the morning drive we'll see scattered showers with a few heavy downpours.  We'll see a lull in the precipitation by lunch time and during the early afternoon.

Isolated T-storms will be possible by the early afternoon, but those storms should stay below severe limits prior to 4 p.m.  Between 4 p.m. and  9 p.m. we'll be watching a squall line cross the state where some storms may be severe and produce large hail and damaging wind gusts. The tornado threat is low, but not non-existent today.
