Most of the eastern United States can expect a stormy start to the week as summertime-type thunderstorms are expected both Monday and Tuesday. The Storm Prediction Center is forecasting a slight risk of severe thunderstorms both today and tomorrow, with the main threats being hail and wind (with possibly a tornado or two in the Texas Panhandle and New Mexico). The areas in green on the map are the areas expecting general non-severe thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Alberto is still hanging on off the southeastern coast as a minimal tropical storm. It has 40 MPH winds and is moving off to the east, with an expected race towards the northeast expected to begin tonight. The system shouldn't last much longer than Wednesday, if that. The storm will not post a threat to land.
