    Updated: 3:21 PM EDT : I still see thunderstorm development to our west on radar, but the cloud cover here in the immediate Nelson area is helping to limit thunderstorm development currently. I am not impressed by the dynamics I see so far for the potential of severe weather. But, keeping an eye to the west to see if those storms can make it over the mountain here. Stronger storms have broken out to our south and east away from the area. Moving SE

    More as it develops.
