SHOWERS & STORMS INLAND… Our weather headline has not changed over the last few hours. Numerous showers and thunderstorms continue to train northeast across inland counties as of 4PM. Small showers are beginning to pop up closer to the coast as well. While the overall severe weather threat over the next hour or two will remain low, I can’t rule out a few strong to severe storms as we go into the evening hours.
RISK MAY EXTEND INTO OVERNIGHT HOURS… Unfortunately, the latest forecast guidance is suggesting we may have to contend with the potential for a few strong to severe thunderstorms overnight and into Thursday morning before the whole weather system responsible for this active weather kicks out of our region to the east late tomorrow morning into the afternoon hours. Earlier forecast guidance suggested we would have more heavy rain in place consistently throughout the day, thus limiting the overall risk for severe weather after 10PM. Odds are most places will have heavy rain at times, but there could be a rogue storm or two that ramp up to severe levels. The tornado risk will remain low, but not at zero until Thursday midday when the area of low pressure passes by. I’ll have more info about this later this evening.
