(WALA) - Clouds and isolated areas of rain will affect the area through Wednesday afternoon, followed by a good chance of storms Wednesday evening and into early Thursday morning.

There is a slight risk for severe weather with the next system, and thunderstorms with gusty winds and small to medium hail are the most likely threats. The severe threat lowers Thursday morning as the surface front stalled over the area. We remain in a marginal risk for severe until later Thursday afternoon. Ahead of the next system, the rip current risk will remain high all week.

Red flag conditions are expected along with rough surf and gusty winds. Swimming is not advised at area beaches. Rain chances look spotty during the day Wednesday. The chance jumps to 90% Wednesday night.

The front lingers into the weekend, with low end scattered chances on Saturday and Easter Sunday. As of now, the forecast call for partly cloudy skies, highs near 82, and a 30% chance of rain on Easter Sunday.
