The FIRST ALERT Team is tracking heavy thunderstorms overnight and Thursday morning. The biggest threats with these storms will be torrential rains and terrific lightning. There is also a risk of wind damage to trees and power lines.

The National Weather Service has issued a FLASH FLOOD WATCH until at least 11 a.m. Thursday as a result of the likely heavy rains.
