MONDAY STORM THREAT

A line of storms will drop south from the Central Plains, reinvigorated by the warm and humid conditions leftover from the Monday afternoon heat.  There are colder temperatures in the upper levels of the atmosphere that will lead to greater instability for storms to hold together. The timing for storms will be mainly after sunset Monday.
