Plan a little extra travel time this Thursday morning for your commute. Roads will be wet for many this morning with areas of fog reducing visibilities at times.
Temperatures are generally in the 40s this morning. Despite today’s clouds and rain, highs in the 60s can be expected.
Today’s forecast centers on the threat for severe weather. Rain off and on is expected this morning, but storms this afternoon will bring the threat for severe weather.
As of now, our region is under a slight risk for severe weather, meaning isolated severe thunderstorms will be possible. Any storm that becomes severe today will bring the threats of damaging winds and large hail. Additionally, heavy rain may lead to some localized flooding. And while the risk is low, isolated tornadoes can not be completely ruled out.
The severe weather threat will likely be during the afternoon and into the early evening hours, then winding down later tonight.
A few rain showers will linger into early Friday morning. Some of the rain showers may briefly change to snow for the higher elevations as the system exits to our east Friday morning.
Friday afternoon through the weekend looks dry with more sunshine returning.
