Rain-Free Start To Weekend; T-Storm End

Isolated Severe Thunderstorm Possible Sunday Afternoon

Warm weather is now the name of the game, and in time there will be higher humidity as well.   Clouds will part company for a bit of sunshine Saturday, allowing for another warm afternoon.  Rain-free weather will hang on for most, if not all, throughout the daylight hours.

A shower or thundershower cannot be ruled out Saturday night or Sunday morning, but the majority of wet weather will occur Sunday afternoon and evening.  As far as the risk of severe weather, there is no threat of a tornado.   However, there can be an isolated severe thunderstorm with damaging wind gusts being the biggest item.   Even if a thunderstorm doesn’t reach severe limits throughout Sunday, a wind gust near 40 mph can certainly be enough to bring down a tree.   Keep an eye to the sky and stay safe.

Our latest cool front will likely stall just to our north early next week.   That could help ignite an afternoon thunderstorm Monday.  It will certainly allow warm, humid air to remain.   Patchy late night or early morning fog will also be a concern.   Cooler weather may not return until the following weekend with more storms possible late next week.

Finally, remember to set your clock ahead one hour Sunday morning, as daylight saving time begins.
