    Another round of thunderstorms is likely tomorrow at the Jersey Shore, but whether they reach severe levels is up in the air. 

    A low pressure system will move through the region tomorrow and potentially spark severe storms, according to the National Weather Service. 

    The threat window for showers and thunderstorms is likely between the mid-morning and late afternoon hours. 

    The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center places the entire Jersey Shore in the “slight” risk category for severe weather. 

    Slight risk implies that scattered severe storms that are “short-lived and/or not widespread” are possible (compared with isolated storms in the marginal designation), according to the center. 

    Some of the storms could produce strong wind gusts, heavy rain, hail, and frequent cloud to ground lightning, a National Weather Service bulletin advises.
