After several active days of severe weather, the forecast looks a little quieter for Wednesday and Thursday. Some severe storms are likely, but overall coverage will be diminished with weaker Jet Stream energy. There is a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms Wednesday in the Upper Midwest and Ohio Valley. A stalled front will interact with high humidity and warm temperatures. The mercury will climb into the 90s in some areas, with dew points in the 70s, creating significant instability for severe storms.
With the Jet Stream barely moving for Thursday, Independence Day, a marginal severe weather risk continues in the Upper Midwest and High Plains. A stalled front will be the focus for a few severe storms in the late afternoon and evening.
WeatherNation will have severe weather updates on-air and online, check back with us throughout the day for the latest information.
