Tuesday will be warm and windy with high temperatures in the mid to upper 70s, possibly breaking the record high in Columbia of 75 from 1972. Southerly winds of 15-20 mph will gust to 30 mph at times, giving us a higher fire risk Tuesday. There is a slight chance of t-storms by late afternoon which will increase Tuesday evening and overnight as a cold front moves through. Strong to severe storms are possible. Areas along and south of HWY 54 are in a Slight Severe Threat for Tuesday night and areas farther north in a slightly lower Marginal Severe Threat. At this time, damaging wind and large hail are the primary threats. Storms will move to near I-44 by 3 AM and out of the area. Another chance of light rain moves in from the northwest Wednesday morning. A brief period of snow or rain/ snow mix is possible north of I-70 Wednesday morning but accumulation is not expected due to above freezing temperatures. It will be cooler Wednesday with highs near 50, dropping to near 30 overnight. Please check back for updates and follow ABC17Stormtrack on Twitter and ABC17News on Facebook for updates as well.
