Let's start with the good news.
After rounds of storms that soaked parts of the area with several inches of rain on Tuesday, Wednesday will be dry for most of the day.
But in the mid-afternoon that is likely to change in a big way after a cold front pushes into a warm air mass, ushering in showers and isolated severe thunderstorms with gusty winds and flooding downpours. Small hail is also possible.
Those gusty winds could bring down tree limbs that are more vulnerable after Tuesday's heavy rains, leading to power outages.
Warmer weather is expected Wednesday but how warm will depend on how much sun we will see. If there's more sun and heat during the day, the likelihood of severe afternoon and evening storms will be higher.
Wednesday's high temperature will be in the upper-70s
The storm chance will start around 3 p.m. Wednesday and last through after midnight Thursday.
The passing of the cold front will result in a cooler day Thursday with a high in the upper-60s under partly sunny skies.
