As far as the severe threat goes, parts of the Delta are under a Level 2 risk while most of the northeastern quadrant of the state is under a Level 1.

Storms are expected Tuesday afternoon until Tuesday night. The main risks are severe storms, damaging winds, and hail, although a tornado can’t be ruled out. The risk is greater in the Level 2.

The good thing about this storm system is that storms will be isolated to scattered as not all areas will receive severe weather. The southern region of the state may not even have any rain at alll
