Mother Nature cut us some slack on Memorial Day weekend. Two of the three days were calling for rain that never arrived. We’re back to reality, however, as severe thunderstorms are expected to soak the Capital Region this afternoon.

The storms are expected to begin later this afternoon before moving out of the area by late Tuesday night. You shouldn’t expect the rain to provide a cooling effect as Wednesday’s temps should be somewhere in the mid 80’s.

Keep checking the Hot 99.1 weather service for more updates on the severe weather.
