Good Wednesday, gang. As most of the kiddos return to school today, the thunderstorm threat gets ready to increase for much of the region. Once this one kicks off, it’s likely to stay around for the long haul with multiple systems impacting our region.
Highs today will be in the low and middle 80s with a mix of sun and clouds. Showers and storms then show up in scattered fashion from west to east late today. A few of the storms may even be strong. Here’s the latest from the Storm Prediction Center:

Have a great day and take care.
