A storm system moving into the Pacific Northwest, bringing well needed rain to the region but also the threat for severe thunderstorms.  Areas from southern Washington north of Portland to Medford, Oregon have the potential to see strong wind gusts and large hail. There is a slight risk (level 2 on a scale from 1 to 5) along the Cascades in Oregon. Humidity will increase through the afternoon as upper level energy moves into the region. Thunderstorms will be slow to form and isolated in nature. Coverage will begin to increase in the evening and continue through the overnight. The rain is welcome to help the wildfire situation, but lightning is a concern in starting additional fires. WeatherNation will keep you posted on the potential for severe thunderstorms in the Northwest on-air and online.
