Storms Wednesday PM and Thursday PM, some could be strong to severe
TODAY: The first half of the day will be mostly clear to partly cloudy. Winds out of the east keep temperatures cooler near Lake Superior. Highs reach the 50s and 60s near the lake, with 70s to low 80s away from Lake Superior. A chance for storms moves in during the later afternoon hours. Showers and thunderstorms become likely this evening into the early morning hours of Thursday. A couple storms could be strong to severe, with the main threats being large hail and strong winds. A couple isolated tornadoes can’t be ruled out as well, especially before sunset. In addition, heavy rain may lead to some localized flooding. Stay sky aware tonight!
THURSDAY: A few lingering storms are possible during the morning. Otherwise, we’ll see decreasing clouds toward the afternoon with a chance for scattered t-storms. Showers and thunderstorms become likely once again Thursday evening into early Friday morning. All modes of severe weather are possible with this wave - large hail, strong winds, flooding, and even a couple tornadoes are all possible. Make sure you have a plan in case a tornado warning or a severe thunderstorm warning is issued. The safest place to be is inside a sturdy structure away from windows in the lowest, most central location of the structure.
FRIDAY: A few lingering t-storms will be possible early. Otherwise, skies become mostly clear with highs in the 70s and 80s.
