Damaging wind, hail, lightning, and brief heavy downpours are possible risks from storms. Right now, timing is for the afternoon and evening. Highs are expected in the upper 80s. The front wiggles south but could still be close enough to trigger an isolated thunderstorm Thursday afternoon. Temperatures are still warm in the middle 80s.
