No real relief from the wind today, but relief from storms - and severe weather - continues through the evening. Storms, some severe, are expected to return overnight with a chance of occasional storms for a while.
Our mild weather continues today and tomorrow, but expected conditions prompt us to call for a First Alert Weather Day (FAWD) for Friday (through Friday night). The latest data reinforces earlier information - there is a high potential for severe weather in the KCBD viewing area late Friday.
Little chance of storms and rain through Thursday, however, severe storms may mar the start of our weekend. The calm before the storms, perhaps. Today's story includes the sunshine, the storms, the warmth, the lack of wind in the near term, and the high winds possible in the longer term.
