First Alert Weather: Thunderstorms and rain in the forecast

(KCBD) - No watches or warnings expected through tomorrow. However, even with the much cooler air moving in behind the overnight cold front, there is a continuing elevated wildfire danger due to the combination of wind, dry air and dry fuels (no burn conditions).

Rain is still in my forecast for Friday and Saturday. The rain chance begins late Thursday over the far western KCBD viewing area - a few thunderstorms may drift in from the west during the evening.

A slight chance of rain will linger through the night, spreading east across much of the viewing area. Any rain through Friday morning is likely to be sparse and light. As of this morning, we have a good chance of thunderstorms and rain in the viewing area Friday evening into Saturday morning.

Some of the storms may be strong, with strong winds, small hail, and heavy rain. A few of these storms may become marginally severe (hail around 1 inch in diameter and/or winds near 60 mph) late Friday, mainly over the southwestern third of the KCBD viewing area.
