9:50 PM UPDATE: Discrete storms are still possible tonight that could take advantage of the very favorable environment and become organized. There still exists a slight risk (2/5) for severe weather as individual storms move from southwest to northeast before a line attempts to form ahead of the cold front and pushes to the southeast.
These discrete cells could see some rotation and can possibly form tornadoes. Make sure you have ways to receive alerts as tornadoes at night are nearly impossible to physically see. Hail and severe wind gusts are potential threats with these storms as well.
When that line attempts to form the main threat will be damaging straight line winds as well as heavy rainfall rates that could lead to flash flooding. Tornadoes will also still be possible embedded in the line. This will move through the area through the night into the early morning of Wednesday.
How to Prepare
Be sure to multiple ways to receive weather alerts and stay tuned to updated forecasts during the day. Round two will move through during the night, so make sure your phone is unmuted, charged, and turned on for WEA notifications.
Have a plan and a safe place to go to if a warning is issued for your location. Find a lower-level, interior room away from windows. Secure outdoor furniture and decor beforehand.
