Storm Team 3: Strong to severe storms possible as temps soar into the 80's

A changing weather pattern could fire up storms that could turn severe.

Thursday kicks off a very active pattern set to literally make a splash.

A passing warm front will jump-start the active weather by helping temps today soar into the lower 80s under partly sunny skies.

An isolated chance for showers and storms through the morning/early afternoon will lead to higher chances for the late afternoon, evening, and overnight hours thanks to a cold front looking to move through the area by the PM.

Not only will this help cool us down for Friday, and the following days, but will begin to fire off potentially severe storms.

Today through Saturday, portions of the area fall under a Slight Risk (2 out of 5) for severe development - the main threats will be large hail and damaging winds.

Rain, heavy at times, will be nearly continuous through the weekend, and over the next 7 days - we're all looking at 3-4" of new rain form this soon to be stalled system.
