More Storms Possible Wednesday

The upper-level pattern we've been in all week continues today, where a series of disturbances track over our region along an upper jet stream just to our north. With the high heat and humidity at the surface, storms result from the additional upper lift provided by these waves. As in recent days, some of these storms can become severe with damaging straight line winds greater than 65 mph. There may also be some hail around quarter-size in the strongest storms, but wind still looks like our primary threat. Any of these storms can produce heavy downpours and frequent lightning. Stay with CBS6, we'll keep you ahead of the storm.
