Dry start to your Thursday forecast

Storms return this afternoon, potentially severe

Heading out the door, you'll find partly cloudy skies with mild and muggy conditions. Temperatures will fall to the mid 60s across the Tri-State. If you are wanting to get outside today, the morning and early afternoon is the time to do it.  Showers and storms will return again this afternoon.

An area of low pressure will bring a cold front through the Tri-State later this afternoon producing showers and thunderstorms.  We'll see this chance beginning around 4 p.m. and lasting up until 10 p.m. We will also see the risk of severe storms today.  Storms could produce large hail, damaging wind gusts, torrential downpours and frequent lightning. 

The Storm Prediction Center has the majority of our area in a "slight risk" of severe storms again today.  Our main line of storms today will eventually progress from west to east when looking at it on radar.  But individual cells will move more from the southwest to northeast, just like yesterday.

This unsettled weather pattern is going to last for numerous days.  Thursday, the morning hours will be dry with pop up showers and storms in the peak heating of the day.  Due to the amount of energy available in the atmosphere, I wouldn't rule out a few stronger to severe storms again.  But this chance for rain is less this day at 30%.  The same can be said about Friday's forecast with highs in the mid 80s. 

Scattered showers and storms can be expected as we start the weekend and yes, temperatures will still be warm and muggy. Highs on Saturday hit the mid 80s.

By Sunday, a front stalls over the area as another rainmaker slides by giving us providing another potential for severe weather. We will certainly see more rain and storms Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Also by then, it appears the highs will drop back into the upper 70s.

Overall, a very active 7 day forecast for us.
