The chance of rain per weather.com has gone down to 40%, and it’s been trending down. I’m hoping we can avoid rain! The days surrounding Friday are all dry so I’m hoping we will be good.

Don't even worry until 3 days out...too changeable.

Yeah, it’s said scattered thunderstorms all week, the percentage chance of storms is generally below 50% at most times and the days surrounding generally have low chance of rain. I’m thinking we will get some small, localized storms and mostly be okay. Still have four days for the forecast to change, hoping that it clears up!

The weather will be localized. The rain should not be a wash out

Thunderstorms back to 80%... PM not sure how late
Not sure where you are seeing that, the forecast I just looked at says 50% chance of rain between 5-7 PM, Nothing currently about T-storms.

Just found different forecast saying T-storm at 5PM. Bummer, hope it changes.

I always go by the National Weather Service official forecast and don't pay any attention to Wunderground, Weather.com, Accuweather etc. They're always all over the place.

NWS has a 40% chance of showers (no mention of thunderstorms at all) at the moment and has for the last 2 days.

Folks, I’ve been watching this forecast like a hawk for about a week. It has gone back and forth from 20% to 40% to 60% to 80% chance of rain and sometimes spots inbetween. Weather.com and Google don’t seem to know. We will probably have to wait for a clearer idea.
