“Similar to yesterday, hail will be our biggest concern,” meteorologist Kassandra Crimi said. “Cloud tops don’t look to be as cold as yesterday, but damaging hail reaching 1 to 1½” in size will be possible. These storms will also bring the potential for damaging winds and heavy downpours. When you see the skies darken or start to hear thunder, head indoors.”
