Stormy Saturday

Severe Weather Risk

More moist air up from the gulf will help produce partly to mostly cloudy skies today with a slight chance for isolated morning showers and maybe a sprinkle or two in the afternoon. Highs will push to the mid to upper 60s and maybe even some low 70s.

Mostly cloudy tonight with scattered showers developing late. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 50s.

A strengthening storm system pushing in from the west will tap into that warm gulf moisture and bring rain and thunderstorms to our region Saturday. There is a SLIGHT risk for severe weather Saturday afternoon with damaging winds, frequent lightning, hail, periods of heavy rain with localized flooding (fallen leaves clogging drains could be an issue), and some tornado activity. The confidence is still a bit shaky on whether we will see any severe weather at all. If storms fire up south of us along the gulf coast, it’s possible they will use up a good bit of that energy before it has a chance to make it into our area. We’ll have to keep any eye on this as the day progresses. Outside of any severe threat, showers and thunderstorms are likely on Saturday.

Isolated showers remain possible on Sunday with another round of showers and thunderstorms on Monday.

Weekend highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s. Lows will be in the upper 50s to low 60s.
