The first one by midday with the warm front. The warmest time of the day may actually be closer to sunset.

The second round arrives after dark as the cold front moves into our area. The Storm Prediction Center has our ADI under a “marginal” risk (level 1) for severe weather, especially with the second round.

Another system increases rain chances to close the workweek. Dry & more “fall-like” this weekend.
