THE WEATHER NUGGETS

1.  RAIN & ISOLATED SEVERE T'STORM RISK

2.  24-HOUR SPRING

3.  NON-T'STORM WIND EVENT

4.  BIG COOL-DOWN WITH SOME FLAKES

RAIN & ISOLATED SEVERE T'STORM RISK

Wave #1 of rainfall late tonight-Wednesday morning to Wednesday early afternoon. 

Wave #2 is late Wednesday night-Thursday morning as rainfall & some t'storms.  An isolated severe storm cannot be ruled out.

Wave #3 will be in the form of a line or two of showers & t'storms with isolated severe risk Thursday late afternoon with the cold front.  Wind fields will already be very strong, so it would not take much to get even greater wind speeds to the surface in t'storms.

Missing ingredient is cold air aloft..............that is displace northwest of the area.  Otherwise, the shear & dynamics support severe.  Missing ingredient will keep us in MARGINAL RISK for now.

A total of 0.40-1" of rainfall is expected from these three waves of rainfall.

24-HOUR SPRING

Temperatures will rise to 58-63 later Wednesday, followed by a rise to 59-65 by early Thursday morning.  Thursday's highs should reach 67-71 in the early afternoon. 

NON-T'STORM WIND EVENT

Wednesday will turn breezy late, but the first wave of high winds will arrive Wednesday night with gusts 45-55 mph from the south.

Winds may relax a bit briefly Thursday morning (gusts drop to 40 mph), followed by another wave of high winds Thursday afternoon.  Gusts 50-60 mph are possible from the south to southwest.

Gusts of 40-50 mph are possible right into Thursday night.

Friday's wind may gust to 45 mph from the northwest.

BIG COOL-DOWN WITH SOME FLAKES

Temperatures will fall to the 30s to 40 Friday with some scattered rain/snow showers.
