StormTracker Forecast…The spring-like weather will continue today before a strong cold front moves through the area late tonight. Before the front moves in, strong to severe storms may develop. The Storm Prediction Center has trimmed our area from the Slight Risk (threat level 2 out of 5), but we are still under a Marginal Risk (threat level 1 out of 5) for severe weather today and tonight. The main threat would be damaging wind gusts. A brief tornado or two cannot be ruled out. A broken line of storms will develop to our west and track to the east this afternoon and evening. Strong winds may develop ahead of and along the leading edge of the line. Ahead of the front, temperatures will warm into the upper 70s. Temperatures will drop into the 50s by daybreak on Thursday. Rain will end from west to east Thursday morning, but cloud cover will linger throughout the day. Afternoon temperatures will only be in the mid and upper 50s.
