While an isolated shower or storm this afternoon cannot be ruled out, the most severe threat really gets going after 6PM.

While these storms are still scattered, they have a better chance to be severe through this evening producing possible dime-quarter size hail and damaging wind gusts for 45-60mph+

These storms may have the potential for 1"/hr+ rain rates leading to poor drainage and roadway flooding.

The "severe" threat wanes toward 11PM.

There may be a break at this point into part of the overnight, before the main cold front approaches and brings a round of rain with locally heavy downpours between 3AM and 9AM.
