Severe weather chances

There will be a chance of severe weather on Wednesday, June 5, 2019, according to the National Weather Service.

A warm front pushing into the region Wednesday will bring higher temperatures, increasing humidity and a chance of some severe afternoon thunderstorms.

A lengthy period of wet weather that could extend for a least 10 days is on tap, starting with a marginal risk of severe weather, the National Weather Service said in its morning briefing.

The risk is slightly higher along and west of I-95.

Typical of afternoon heat-driven weather systems, storms this afternoon and again tomorrow could produce winds gusting to tropical storm force, frequent lightning, hail and heavy downpours in isolated areas. Forecasters are calling for a total of approximately an inch of rain through Thursday night.

Tornado threats during these storms is low, the weather service said.

Temperatures today and Thursday are expected to climb into the mid to upper 80s, before a cold front brings more seasonable highs through the end of next week.
