hazard is expected to be large hail with localized damaging
winds.  The coverage of severe storms will increase around
sunset through the mid evening hours, with a gradual decrease
in intensity as storms move eastward and as instability
decreases during the late evening to overnight hours.
Severe weather watches and warnings should be anticipated
from late Sunday afternoon into the early morning hours
on Monday.
Thunderstorms will be exiting the region during the
day Monday with the severe weather focused well south
