(KTVI) - Sunday opens cloudy with a narrow band of non-severe thundershowers pressing into the metro area from the west. These are forming along the outflow of rain cooled air generated from the massive complex of storms in the Plains Saturday night. The remnant thundershowers will be around through midday as they head east.

There will be a lot of dry time today, but by Sunday afternoon, some breaks in the overcast should develop allowing for the air to become unstable. This will lead to several pockets of new thunderstorms developing by mid afternoon. This time, there may be just enough energy available to push a few of these storms to severe limits. The primary threat will be from spotty half dollar sized hail and 60 mph wind gusts, although a tornado cannot be ruled out, it is not a high risk situation.

In addition, later today into tonight, thunderstorms may redevelop and repeatedly move over the same areas which could pose a flash flood threat later tonight.
