Storms developing over DNC in Charlotte

(CNN) - More rain and storms are in the Thursday forecast for Charlotte, North Carolina host city for the Democratic National Convention, according to the National Weather Service.

See the latest forecast information and weather radar below the jump.

The NWS forecast calls for "scattered showers and thunderstorms" until 8 p.m. ET, and after that, partly cloudy skies. Precipitation in the afternoon was given a 50% chance, while the evening and overnight forecast rates that chance at 30% with "rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms."

On Wednesday, convention organizers canceled plans for President Barack Obama to deliver his acceptance address Thursday evening at an outdoor stadium with over 65,000 people in attendance. The evening's events will now take place inside the main convention hall which has housed the other major events of the convention.

    God is coming to thank president Obama for looking out for the poor and disenfranchised and trying to save the middle class. Also God is going to take Paul Ryan to the tool shed and straighten him out on his across the board cuts. Obama Biden 2012!

    Woman in new Mittens commercial called "The Breakup" = RNC Director of Hispanic Outreach Bettina Inclan.

    I guess the "I'm so disapopinted with you after voting for you in 2008" crap that Mittens is trying to sell as though it's widespread isn't so widespread after all. One might wonder, if it is so pervasive as they try to claim, why do they need to pay actors or use their own RNC staffers to play the parts? They want you to think they could just walk out of the office, grab someone off the street and, more likely than not, that person would say "yeah, I voted for Obama in 2008, but I won't this year because I'm a sad panda." Well, then, why didn't they? 2 + 2.....

    Hilarious, isn't it, that they had to use a GOP staffer to talk to yet another inanimate object in their ads.

    On topic, I'm glad that the DNC used some good sense and relocated tonight's festivities inside: better to protect the safety & well being of the people attending the event and the camera/news crews walking around hauling electric cables/components on those set up metal stages, than to risk a catastrophic lightening strike/electrocution. It's just unfortunate that there isn't a larger facility available tonight with a roof on it: 65,000 people had already been cleared to attend and there were 19,000 on standby–lots of disappointment all around.

    Ah well.

    Truth, you are the hypocrite who worships a liar who sends millions to a place so far away that the money needs a Passport to get back to the US. He won't release tax returns, he lied about Welfare and Medicare, and HAS NO PLAN ON ANYTHING.
    You trust that?

    Yeah, the MSM is in control of the weather and obviously ordered up a big ole storm to give Obama the "cover" he needs. Oh, and do you hear that? Hear it? That's the sound of me using my magic liberal weather control powers to fake climate change.
