Severe T-storm watch, wind advisory in effect 

Showers to arrive before sunrise


Clouds are thickening ahead of strong thunderstorms today and Tuesday.

"Showers will arrive before sunrise," Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said.

Today will be cloudy with rain and thunderstorms with highs around 70 and lows in the 60s.

A better chance of thunderstorms will develop before noon, and shortly thereafter, she said.

"Looks like we could see a lull in activity during the afternoon before a secondary round of rain and storms arrive into the evening," Vrydaghs said. "This looks to be our best chance to see some stronger storms, possibly severe.

"Our biggest threat will be stronger winds and heavy rain," she said.

Another break or lull in the precipitation is possible late tonight into early Tuesday.

Showers and thunderstorms are again expected Tuesday as temperatures reach highs in the mid-70s.

"Some storms may be strong to severe, especially later in the day," Vrydaghs said.

Showers should become more scattered by Wednesday. Highs will be around 70.

The air cools Thursday with highs in the upper 50s and the chance for scattered showers exists through the day.

PERSPECTIVE: The magic of Thanksgiving togetherness

The calm before the rush of Thanksgiving preparation invites reflection. My mom, although extraordinary in matters of the heart, was really not a very good cook. I’m the first to admit her Thanksgiving turkey was a tad dry, and the cauliflower-au-gratin was s bit more watery than Velveeta cheesy. Yet she managed to create the best of what Thanksgiving...
