Severe storm threat Wednesday!

Today features more heat and humidity with a few typical summer-like pop-up showers and storms - no severe weather expected.

But, tomorrow a cold front will slam into the unstable muggy air firing up strong to severe storms.  While there are some timing differences with the various weather models, it's safe to say the highest threat of damaging winds will be during the afternoon and evening tomorrow.  

Futurecast is looking like a pretty good guide to go with at this time, but the timing of the severe weather threat is not exact.  Basically, be ready for severe storms from 2-10pm tomorrow (Wednesday).  The main threats as usual will be damaging wind gusts in excess of 60mph, large hail, frequent cloud-to-ground lightning, and heavy rain.   We cannot rule out a VERY SLIGHT chance of an isolated tornado during this time.  

Follow along with the maps below for an early timeline, again stay tuned for updates over the next 24 hours as we fine tune the forecast.  

Notice on the bottom two maps, the Storm Prediction Center has our entire region under a SLIGHT RISK of Severe Storms tomorrow - this may get upgraded to a MODERATE RISK eventually.  

Check out our 7day Forecast below, once the front moves through we expect lower humidity and cooler temperatures for Thursday and Friday.  Our next chance of storms will be on Crusade Sunday.
