Monahan said the threat of strong storms is expected to stay well south of the metro Sunday.
By the afternoon, an area of low pressure will move through pushing out the rain, and most of the storms will be gone by about 2 p.m.
“I think the wettest part of your Sunday will be the first half of the day. The second half of the day, just dealing with a few spotty rain showers with most of the action well toward out south,” Walls said.
Walls said we could see an additional 1 to 2 inches of rain from the approaching round of showers.
The severe threat stays to our south Sunday. While an isolated thunderstorm cannot be ruled out, heavy rain will be our primary concern, especially before Noon. pic.twitter.com/muUmK7Obma
