.DISCUSSION...

...Thunderstorms this evening...again Thursday then Warming
Trend...

Scattered thunderstorms are moving across the area and will
continue into the evening as an upper level low pressure moves
through. These storms are producing some decent rainfall amounts,
and a few of these storms could product some small hail and winds
gusts up to 50 mph. Tomorrow more scattered showers and
thunderstorms are possible during the afternoon and evening. By
Friday conditions will begin a warming and drying trend into next
week. Early next week a front will move through, but at the
moment stronger winds are not a concern. Reimer
