Scattered areas of rain will be possible at times Thursday night and through Friday morning. While we aren't looking for any plans to be washed out -- know that there could be a few times the umbrella will be needed. Any activity that can stick around Friday could come with a rumble of thunder and brief heavy downpours. Evening rain won't be ruled out...however the chance remains much lower.
SATURDAY is still the day to watch. Heavy rain and thunderstorms will be possible. A few storms could become strong to severe, with damaging winds, isolated tornadoes, and potential large hail being the main concerns, by afternoon and evening.

- A lake-effect storm that dumped more than 6 feet of snow in the Buffalo area trapped people on highways in an area where heavy snow is the norm for most of the winter. More than 2 to 3 feet is forecast to fall Thursday. Why was this storm so fierce?
- Sunshine and south winds returned to the Brazos Valley, Wednesday, bringing back more seasonable weather for November. With those warmer conditions comes our next chance of rain and thunderstorms.
- A snowstorm that could drop two to three feet of snow is on its way toward the Buffalo, New York area -- which already has as much as six feet of snow on the ground from a ferocious lake-effect storm.
- A state official says about 150 vehicles were stranded on a four-mile section of the New York State Thruway because of lake-effect snow, but all the passenger cars are expected to be freed by 10 p.m. Tuesday.
