Justin Liles: Storms to weaken this evening
Some storms are still possible and could be severe, mainly this afternoon/tonight. Large hail, up to 2 inches in diameter, damaging wind gusts up to 70 mph, and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning are the main threats. Locally heavy rainfall may lead to localized flooding. A cool front will slide through Wednesday and create some more isolated showers and thunderstorms. High pressure will move through the region Thursday and Friday with southerly return flow to develop on Friday. Temperatures will once again climb into the upper 80s to low 90s away from Lake Superior. This warm up should be short-lived with a cool front forecast to arrive Friday night or Saturday morning.
