WEDNESDAY: Scattered showers and storms will continue through remainder of the day. A few of the storms could be strong with gusty winds, hail and a few tornadoes. Our storm threat continues through the early evening hours before being cut off by colder, more stable air moving in in the wake of the front. Once the cooler air moves in, expect rain showers to pick up into Thursday morning amid lows in the 40s to near 50°.

THURSDAY: The sluggish front will keep an opportunity of showers in the forecast through mid-day. Temperatures will slip downward into the upper 40s and lower 50s through the day amid a brisk northwest breeze. Rain will taper into the afternoon and skies will gradually clear into Thursday night. Lows will drop into the lower to middle 30s.

EXTENDED FORECAST: High pressure will slip into the region, bringing sun for Friday. Highs will rebound to near 60. A weak system may spark a few showers Saturday before clearing Sunday amid temperatures warming back into the 60s. Highs in the 70s return ahead of another chance for rain and storms early next week.
