Showers are still on pace to swing through this morning, making for more than just a sloppy commute but a fairly dreary day.

As the front moves through during the mid-morning a few showers will carry the ability to produce some isolated severe thunderstorms.

Those storms will be capable of producing damaging winds, and even an isolated tornado, but it should be noted that those storms will be rare.

Overall the thing to watch for will be rainfall, which will be more disruptive than damaging as the front is moving along fairly quickly.

Rain totals will average around .50-1″ with a hot spot of up to 2″ possible but since the front is moving so quickly widespread flooding is not expected.

That’s not to say when the rain is at the heaviest there won’t be any pooling in ditches or low lying roads, but those will drain quickly once the showers come to an end.

Wrap around moisture will keep some light drizzly showers in the forecast for the evening and even through the day on Friday.

While temperatures will dip Thursday night it won’t be as cold as it was earlier in the week and all of this is setting up what will be a beautiful weekend.
