Severe storms return to the forecast Thursday. The main focus will be over the central U.S. along a frontal boundary mid-afternoon to early evening. The severe weather risk stretches all the way up to Minnesota from N Arkansas, but the orange areas (see above) see the greatest risk today. Here we could see large hail and damaging winds as well as heavy rain. Storms will fire along a stationary from starting early afternoon. They'll likely be strongest by 2 to 3 P.M.  and weaken in the evening. We see a smaller area with a severe weather risk on the other end of that same stationary front, over parts of the mid-Atlantic. Damaging winds are the main threat with these storms, mainly impacting the Virginias. Widespread storms are possible south of the frontal boundary, but the strongest storms will be along the front across West Virginia and Virginia.
