We will have a chance for some spotty showers Wednesday morning and Wednesday afternoon. It looks like better storm chances will be with us Thursday. An upper level trough currently out West will slowly move across the area today.

THURSDAY AFTERNOON PRECIPITATION FORECAST
Now the big question is weather or not we will get any severe storms tomorrow and it does look like we could have a few isolated strong thunderstorms. Here is our thinking:
THURSDAY CONVECTIVE AVAILABLE POTENTIAL ENERGY (CAPE)
CAPE is a great indicator of how much energy will be around to help fuel our storm chances. When the CAPE readings are high that means hail, heavy rain and strong winds could be possible. We could have a few isolated strong storms, but we are not expecting a major severe outbreak.
