Severe weather to impact the area this evening and overnight

(WTVM) - A powerful storm system out towards our west in the Mid-South is slowly advancing east.

This system is responsible for all the severe weather across the U.S. as of late and it continues to pack a punch.

Despite mostly cloudy skies, highs should top out in the mid to upper 80s with a lot of moisture in place.

As our Wednesday progresses, isolated t-storms are possible with a better chance coming in by tonight (between 8:00 p.m. - 2:00 a.m. at this point).

The main risks out of these storms are damaging winds and large hail, though isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

The threat for severe weather should end early Thursday for us as the cold front advances east of the Valley.
