Severe Storms Possible Saturday

Warmer than normal highs/lows

We are into a period of unsettled weather for the weekend and we can expect a chance for showers and thunderstorms today through Sunday. With decent daytime heating this afternoon, but lack of wind shear, a few isolated strong storms are possible, but nothing severe.

Saturday is a bit of a different picture. Things looks to get more organized with wind shear increasing enough to turn some storms severe during the afternoon and early evening.  Damaging winds up to 60 mph and quarter size hail will be the biggest concern. Periods of heavy rainfall is also possible and cannot rule out tornado activity.

Sunday wraps the weekend with a few isolated showers and thunderstorms still possible before a drier air mass invades, squeezes out the moisture and puts us into stretch of mostly rain-free weather next week although Tuesday could see some shower activity.
