Thunder Threats

More thunderstorms are expected today into tonight as a disturbance in combination with another push of cooler air moves into the region.  Although there is not as much moisture in the air as there was on Wednesday, there is still sufficient water vapor that some localized heavy downpours will probably occur.  The good news is that usually excessive rains are in localized areas, plus, it appears that these storms will be moving fast enough to also limit such potential.  Therefore, most locations that get rain will probably not record much more than 1”.  Once these storms move out, some drier air will move into the area limiting thunderstorms threats until next week.
