Suchan Says: Stormy 24 Hours

Scattered thunderstorms now and through the rest of tonight will be capable of producing pea to nickel size hail at times.  There’s a remote chance some larger hail could accompany any briefly stronger storm tonight to produce a Severe T-Storm Warning.  Otherwise mainly sub-severe hail size, downpours and frequent lightning straight into the morning commute.

We’ll see showers and some thunder linger through midday then may see breaks of sun for a bit of the afternoon.  Given the approaching strong cold front and strong wind shear in the atmosphere, we do NOT want to see the sun Thursday as that will only increase the severe weather risk.

I see a pretty high chance of severe storms capable of large hail, strong wind gusts and even an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.  We’ll need to carefully monitor the skies through the day and we’ll keep you posted frequently through social media and on-air until the cold front pushes by!
