The threat for severe weather remains for our area later in the day Thursday, then again possibly late Thursday night. The first round for the late-afternoon & evening will hold the bigger concern for severe storms, as the second round for the late-night timeframe looks to be a little weaker now, but still holds a strong/severe storm potential. The first wave will rumble through around & after 4 PM, with large hail (2" or larger in diameter), damaging wind, & tornadoes all possible. The tornado threat has actually increased dramatically over the past 24 hours, with a few large, long-tracked tornadoes possible for our area. These threats will be greater early on, as the storms are individual in nature, before they cluster together & form a line of storms, bringing more of a damaging wind threat to the area late Thursday night-early Friday morning. A lot of lightning & heavy rain will also accompany the storms, with easily an inch or more for rainfall totals by Friday morning.
