FIRST TO ALERT: Tracking showers & storms into the area this afternoon. Threats & timing here.

(WTVM) – The clouds are in place this morning with rain and a few storms coming in this afternoon. You can expect the coverage of rain to increase after 3 PM ET and take us through bedtime.

Temperatures will top out in the 60s. There's a chance to see some stronger to severe storms this afternoon but the chance is low. Damaging wind gusts are the primary concern but we can't rule out a brief, isolated tornado. Rainfall totals should stay near a quarter of an inch.

The mild weather takes us through the work week with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s each day and morning lows above freezing. The next rain chance comes in for the weekend. Other than that expect sunny skies.
