Earth Day: Great for outdoors today; Strong storm threat late Friday – early Saturday

Weather

Today & Tonight: We’ll see plenty of sun before clouds gradually begin to return late Thursday ahead of our next system, which is set to arrive Friday night/Saturday. Highs in the lower 70s. Overnight temperatures in the mid 50s.

Friday & Saturday: A storm system will begin to approach our area from the west and northwest. We we likely start seeing spotty showers late in the morning or early afternoon before storms become more scattered to numerous during the evening and overnight. The SPC has placed our area under a Slight and Marginal Risk for severe weather. All modes of severe weather will be possible – damaging wind, hail, isolated flash flooding, and tornadoes. Window of opportunity will most likely be Friday late afternoon/evening through midday Saturday . Storms may come in two rounds – First round of storms would likely be triggered by a warm front lifting to the north on Friday and the second would be triggered ahead of a passing cold front early Saturday.

Otherwise, it’s going to be mostly cloudy, warm, and breezy with highs near 76°F on Friday. Rain chances will taper throughout Saturday morning and by the afternoon. Sun and clouds by the afternoon. Breezy with a high near 82°F. Overnight temperature near 57.

Sunday: Sunny skies return and it will be warm and not as humid. High near 80. Overnight temperature near 56.

Next Week: Temperatures in the low and mid 80s with storm chances increasing Wednesday.
