Some other concerns revolve around heavy rain producing minor flooding and thunderstorms that could produce damaging winds. We could see up to 1" of rain. As for severe weather, a marginal risk of severe weather has been placed over our southern counties on Thursday. This would cover the storms that pass in the later afternoon and evening hours.
