In terms of threats, large hail is once again the main concern. Hail larger than golf ball-sized is possible with these storms. Brief downpours are likely, with a lesser threat of damaging winds. Stay weather-aware this evening, especially if you have any outdoor plans. If storms do develop while you are outside, seek shelter in the nearest building and stay away from windows.
