A few strong thunderstorms are possible Thursday through Friday evening. An isolated weak tornado is possible Thursday afternoon and night. However, the main hazards with any storms will be heavy rain and lightning. The heavy rain and thunderstorms will end Friday night in the wake of a cold front," reads a NWS hazardous outlook bulletin.
