Another round of storms will be in the forecast for Wednesday. This will likely be a late day threat like we saw on Monday. A Level 1 Severe Risk is already in place for the day on Wednesday through Wednesday night. Damaging wind gusts and large hail will be possible, while isolated flash flooding may also occur. Conditions will once again feel muggy which will help aid in the strengthening of the storms. Make sure you are staying weather aware Wednesday and Wednesday night.

 

We will be drying out throughout the day on Thursday providing a brief break in the action before more active weather returns Friday. Scattered showers and a few storms will be possible Friday. As this disturbance moves through Friday and early Saturday, expect cooler temperatures to return. Afternoon temperatures on both days will struggle to reach the mid-to-upper 70s. We will eventually begin to dry out late Saturday into Sunday. Temperatures will quickly climb back into the 80s and possibly upper 80s by the middle of next week.
