Most of the heavily populated areas east of the Rocky Mountains will see active weather on Wednesday, with a severe risk across much of the upper Midwest stretching eastward into the Mid Atlantic, with general thunderstorms expected along the Gulf Coast.

Further east towards the Mid Atlantic, the main severe weather threat will be damaging winds and some sporadic hail.
Off to the south near the northern Gulf Coast, a trough will provide enough lift to fire off heavy rain and thunderstorms during the day on Wednesday and lasting through some of Thursday. The HPC predicts upwards of an inch of rain centered across Alabama, with higher amounts possible in any heavy thunderstorms that get going.
Parts of the Pacific coast are also subject to heavy rain Wednesday-Thursday as a storm system makes its way ashore.
