A few severe storms Thursday: A look which areas have the best chance

Parts of the Mid-South have a low-end or MARGINAL risk for a few severe storms Thursday.

Storms will be isolated to scattered at best which means some locations won't see anything while others get a good soaking. The main threat is some high wind gusts. Other threats include heavy rain and intense lightning.

Remember, it won't storm in all locations Thursday, but storms could pop up anywhere, anytime.

It looks like there will be a couple of rounds: one in the morning between 6 and 10 a.m., and another in the afternoon between 2 and 7 p.m. The morning showers or storms could keep the afternoon storms below severe limits. Either way, grab your rain gear as you head out the door just in case.
