It’s that time of year. We are now in the heart of severe weather season and the pattern Wednesday, May 1, lends itself to a threat of at least a few strong storms. Here’s what to look for:

  • Ripples of energy in the upper part of the atmosphere will pass overhead Wednesday, producing scattered storms.
  • The highest odds for severe storms are Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night.

  • Know that not everyone will see severe weather.
  • Any storms that become severe would primarily be capable of large hail and damaging winds. There is a low, but still non-zero, chance for a tornado.
  • Some localized pockets of heavy rainfall will also be a possibility. There is a Flood Watch in effect from Wednesday afternoon through early Thursday morning
