There might be some potential for rush hour to be impacted by storms. Just depends on exactly how much storms we get out ahead of the main line.

Probably the earlier the better but be aware you may have some ongoing storms approaching from the west by mid-morning to our west.

This event typically doesn't favor longer track ones but strong ones couldn't be ruled out, even up to your area. Would not focus too much on the maximum as we get a good amount of tornado potential even on northern gradients.

One thing to note is sometimes the tornado threat can still remain possible even north of the best composite parameters & can also depend on the orientation any bowing segment develops. So would still err on the side of caution.

On Thursday, thunderstorms capable of producing 1 to 3 inches of rainfall over short periods of time, will cause localized flash flooding. This is especially the case in areas that have recently received heavy rain.
