Slight risk of severe storms with high winds

Damaging winds in excess of 60 mph will be the main threat with any storms that develop Wednesday afternoon.

A cold front will slowly make its way into the area tomorrow and stall just to the north of the Tri-Cities.

This front will trigger afternoon showers and storms, some of which could produce damaging winds in excess of 60mph.

In fact, the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has much of the area south of Bay City in a slight risk of severe weather.

This front will bring some relief from the heat in our northern communities, while it remains hot in most other places.

This cold front, however, will finally clear the entire area on Thursday morning.

In addition, a second cold front will clear the area a little later in the morning.

Behind this second front, even colder air will infiltrate the region leaving us with our coldest day of the season on Friday.
