Wednesday Morning: Strong storms possible tonight – early Thursday; More storm chances to come

Weather

Today & Tonight: It’s going to be partly to mostly cloudy, warm and breezy today. Highs in the lower 80s. A few spotty showers are possible during the day, but rain chances will ramp up tonight and early Thursday.

We will have to watch for strong to severe storms. The SPC has placed our area under a Marginal Risk (1 of 5) and Slight Risk (2 of 5) for severe weather Wednesday night – daybreak Thursday. Damaging wind, hail, and a tornado will be possible. Make sure you have multiple ways to get warnings and ones that will wake you up, if needed.

Thursday: Rain will likely be around very early Thursday. There may be some showers around during the second half of the day, but rain chances will be much lower. Rain chance is around 30% for now. High near 83°F. Overnight temperature around 65°F.

Friday & Saturday: Scattered showers and storms at times on Friday, but storms will likely increase in coverage and become more of a threat Friday night and into the first half of our Saturday. The SPC has placed the entire area under a Slight Risk for severe weather – mainly for Friday night through Saturday morning. Damaging wind, large hail, and tornadoes will all be possible. Heavy rain will be a concern, as well. We could easily see 2-4″+ of rain, which could lead to some flooding issues. Rain chance is 40% on Friday, 60% Friday night, and 60% on Saturday. Highs will be in the low and mid 80s.

Sunday: Lower rain chances as the front finally pushes through. Highs in the lower 80s. Sun and clouds.

Most of the rain may fall Friday and Saturday

Next Week: Spotty rain chances with temperatures dropping into the 70s by midweek.
