Winds up to 80 miles per hour and large hail are also threats in those areas. Temperatures in the 80s and high humidity levels could produce severe weather conditions but the probability for hail or a tornado is low. The storms will start to intensify around 5 p.m., according to Meteorologist Jeremy Reiner.

The weather forecast for Wednesday is mostly cloudy, with the chance for rain way down at just 20 percent. One to two inches of rain with small hail is possible. Expect brief heavy downpours which could lead to ponding on roadways as you make your way to work between 6-9 am.
