We're not *yet* in any categorical severe risk area for Thursday -- the Storm Prediction Center does see the possibility for isolated severe (5% odds) and has us in a see text classification for the possibility of an isolated severe storm or two around the region. Parameters are supportive of severe weather but given the amount of cloud cover projected to be around the region it will be tough for storms to get strong enough on a widespread scale.
That said, strong storms with gusty winds do pose a threat...and a couple of them could reach severe criteria tomorrow afternoon. Wind does appear to be one of the byproducts of any stronger thunderstorms tomorrow.
Any thunderstorms tomorrow bring the threat of heavy rain with them -- and the potential does exist for some locations to pick up two inches of rain if they get in on the heaviest of thunderstorms and get a second round of them during the day. Tomorrow does appear to be one of those days where thunderstorms could be around at any point during the day, with a higher concentration in the midday and afternoon hours.
It's something we'll update you on tomorrow morning as well.
