Dry Thursday; Severe Weather Possible Saturday

Weather conditions will remain calm through Thursday as we prepare for an active and wet weather pattern Friday into next week.

Showers return to the forecast Friday. Instability kicks up as we move into the weekend as a cold front pushes through. This could trigger strong to severe storms Saturday afternoon/evening. Damaging winds up to 70 mph and tornadoes will be the main threats. With heavy downpours at times, localized flooding will also be a concern. These conditions could change, so be sure to stay weather aware over the next few days.

The cold front lifts back through the region as a warm front starting Sunday night bringing more rainfall to the area on Monday. How much rain are we talking? From Friday to Sunday, totals could run between .75-1.50”. We could add another 1” on Monday.

Daytime highs and nighttime lows will be staying well above seasonal through next week. We’ll be into the 70s starting Friday and may continue to see 70 degree temperature highs through at least the middle of next week. Nighttime lows (outside of tonight) will also be warmer than normal in the 50s and 60s.

Keep smiling,
