 Widespread storms are expected to form late Saturday afternoon over

 with damaging winds and large hail being the main threat initially.
 These storms will have high rainfall rates which could quickly lead
 to flash flooding if an area gets multiple storms. These storms
 will slowly track eastward leaving a widespread 3 to 5 inches of
 rainfall over the area along and south of I-70.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

 Heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and frequent lightning will remain
 over the area Sunday morning into the afternoon as a line of storms
 pushes through the area. Storms look to finally move out of the

concerns back to the region.
