Severe storms with hail greater than 1″ in diameter, winds in excess of 60 mph and even isolated tornadoes are possible this morning and into the evening hours.

A cold front is expected to move through the region this evening and the chance for rain will taper off after that as cooler air moves into the region heading into the weekend.
