Rain and the potential for a few strong storms

Thursday rain and storms before drier weekend air

Clouds will increase this evening and isolated showers and storms may develop during the late evening. The chance for rain increases overnight. Lows settle near 72 with high levels of humidity.

Rain chance increases overnight

The Thursday morning commute will likely be wet for some areas but not everyone will get the rain to start the day. As a cold front draws near during the afternoon, rain chances and the potential for a few strong storms with gusty winds, will ramp up. Our risk for Severe storms is "Marginal" which is the lowest level, however, with abundant moisture in place, we could see isolated strong to severe storms mainly late afternoon into the evening ahead of the system.

Rainfall will not be evenly distributed so some areas may get .25" to .50" of rain while some areas get upwards of 1.00" With our juiced up atmosphere we could see some minor flooding where thunderstorms develop.

Rain moves out late Thursday and Friday will bring a cooler and drier forecast. The weekend looks dry but we could see isolated showers develop Saturday afternoon, courtesy of a trough of low pressure still over the region. The chance is at about 20-30 percent.

Sunday brings warm sunshine and manageable humidity. Highs climb back into the upper 80s.
