Due to the cool air in the upper levels with the low, the air is unusually unstable for July.
That means “any storms that develop could produce hail and damaging winds, as well as flooding downpours and frequent lightning,” according to CBS4 Chief Meteorologist Craig Setzer.MORE NEWS: Have You Seen Ashley Espinoza-Sanchez? Missing Woman Last Seen At Hard Rock Stadium
