Good Wednesday morning people of WABBLES! I hope everyone has been having a great week so far, but I might be bursting some bubbles with the upcoming severe weather threat tonight.

Before we dive into the storm threat, it is worth mentioning the downright strong winds we will be experiencing throughout the day before storms roll in. The NWS currently has all of WABBLES under a Wind Advisory starting at 9 am for the potential of winds gusting as high as 45-55 mph. This advisory will be in effect until 11 pm tonight.

On top of the howling winds, it will be quite the warm day with highs reaching the upper 70s. With the winds cranking in from the south and if we see a bit of sunshine tomorrow, I wouldn’t be shocked for some areas to reach 80.
