SPC has much of the state highlighted in a “slight risk” (level 2 out of 5) for most of of the state today and tonight. An area of thunderstorms to our north, and likely a developing MCS (Mesoscale Convective System) should dive south and east this afternoon and evening which could enhance storms across the area. The main threat will come from strong straight line winds, possibly enough in a few spots to knock down trees and power lines.
