Wednesday night:

Rain chances will become much more widespread as we get into the evening and overnight hours as low pressure continues to get closer to our area. The rumbles of thunder, but any storms should be below severe limits. 

Overnight fall to the mid-upper 50s. 


Surface low continues to roll over the state on Thursday, bringing widespread rain and a few scattered thunderstorms.

There is also potential for some gusty winds and maybe some large hail, especially in the eastern portions of the state, where there is a level one out of five threat for severe weather.
