Humidity levels continue to rise across the South ahead of the cold front. Dew points are climbing through the 60s, which will help fuel severe storm development as high temperatures approach 80 in a few areas. Forecast models expand the line of storms and increase their intensity into this evening.
Damaging winds are the biggest risk, along with an isolated tornado. The hail threat appears to be lower at this time.
