But Wait, There's More

5:45 Thursday AM update... As mentioned in the video below, severe thunderstorms will be possible Saturday.  Much of the state has a slight risk and an upgrade to an enhanced risk is possible.  How much instability will be present is a big question.  I think there will be enough for strong to severe thunderstorms.  There will also be enough wind energy for a high wind threat PLUS a couple tornadoes.


With the main severe weather threats Saturday high winds and even a couple tornadoes, the super saturated ground means it will be easy to knock over a few trees.

Slight risk for much of the Channel 7 viewing area 

Main impacts

3-5 inches of additional rainfall likely with rain late Thursday/Friday and the line of storms Saturday.


We'll have at least 2 more rounds of rain and some of it will be heavy.

This video goes over the timing, additional rainfall amounts, and the potential for severe thunderstorms.
