[anvplayer video=”5171192″ station=”998131″]

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The start of Wednesday afternoon remains as cloudy. Temperatures will continue to climb, even with the clouds in place, as we will see our afternoon temperatures reach the upper 60s and low 70.

There is the threat for a passing shower or storm this afternoon, but the greatest chance for storms will come this evening. The best chance for storms today has shifted a little later then previous model runs.

As of right now it looks like our best chance for storms will be from 4pm to 10pm this evening, with an even better chance to see storms from 6pm to 9pm this evening. Storms this evening are still on track to bring us strong gusty winds, small hail, heavy downpours, and even the chance for a tornado.

The chance for a tornado remains low, but there is a good amount of spin available in the atmosphere to get storms to rotate locally. After 10 this evening is when we will begin to see things quiet down as a cold front passes and turns cloudy skies into mainly clear skies by Thursday morning.

Make sure you stick with the First Alert Weather Team through the afternoon and evening for updates on watches, warnings, and other reports from possible severe storms this evening.
