These are not expected to be severe. It will be a windy and warm day with highs near 80 and southerly winds of 18-25 mph, gusting as high as 45 mph starting as early as 11AM through 9PM tonight. We will watch for a few storms which could develop in the afternoon. If afternoon storms develop, they could become severe. Areas north of I-70 have the highest risk where large hail, strong wind and a tornado are possible. The timing at this time looks to be from 1PM-4PM in the afternoon.

There is a Marginal Risk on Thursday where from 5PM-10PM isolated thunderstorms could develop near I-70. Periods of storms are expected Thursday night through Saturday. We’ll have to watch for the potential of a few strong or severe storms along with heavy rain.
