Tomorrow (Wednesday): Lots of sun in the morning leads to some bubbly clouds into the midday. Highs are mainly in the low 90s, with some mid-90s possible. Isolated to scattered storms are a good bet in the afternoon or evening. Any storm could be strong. Winds are variable around 5 to 10 mph.
Potent Thursday storms? Two days is forever in storm forecasting, but I found an interesting tidbit from the local National Weather Service office: “The extent of severe weather will be highly dependent on the evolution of upstream convection over the next 48 hours as well as the magnitude of instability locally. Overall, the threat is marginal at this time due to low confidence, but with a high ceiling; a worst case scenario would be one where widespread gusty to damaging winds are observed due to the favorable background environment.”
We’ll be keeping our eyes on it.
