  • For todays severe weather risk, greatest threat would be mainly along the sea breeze. Storm coverage would be isolated and timing would mainly fall between about 2PM-8PM. The strongest storms would bring the potential for strong wind gusts and hail.
  • For Wednesday, another isolated strong to severe thunderstorm risk will be possible with threat timing once again falling between the afternoon to early evening. A risk for strong wind gusts and hail would be the primary hazard within the strongest storms
