Thursday and Friday are active weather days, with the higher chance for showers and storms on Friday. Thursday evening is a better time frame for showers in the region.
A cold front will swing through Friday giving us a chance for showers and storms. There will be pockets of heavy rain as the storms pop up Friday afternoon. Some storms will be strong Friday evening and a few could even be severe, albeit the chance is small.
We don't believe it will be as serious as our severe weather threat as last week.
