Friday Morning: Scattered rain today; Severe weather threat on Sunday

Weather

Today & Tonight: A boundary will slowly move from north to south over the area. This will trigger scattered showers and storms. Some storms could be strong. Rain chance is around 50%. High near 82°F. Rain will taper by the evening. Rain chance overnight is 20%. Overnight temperature near 64°F.

Saturday: We’ll have mostly cloudy skies with highs in the lower 80s. A few showers may be around, but more so to our west. No need to cancel plans, just have your “plan b” ready to go in case a shower or storm finds you. Rain chance is around 20-30% for the day and 40% for Saturday night. Overnight temperature near 67°F.

Sunday: Area of low pressure and a disturbance will pass through the region and this will ignite showers and storms. Some storms may be strong to severe and produce heavy rain, damaging wind, hail, and maybe a tornado or two. The SPC has placed our area under a Slight Risk (threat level 2 of 5) for severe weather on Sunday. Rain chance is 60-70%. Otherwise, warm, mostly cloudy, and breezy. Overnight temperature near 70°F.

Monday: Rain chance will be lower but not zero. Currently, around 30% with a high near 87°F.

Tuesday & Wednesday: Higher rain chances with highs in the upper 80s. We will have to watch very carefully for heavy rain and strong storms. Rain totals look to be 2-4″ with locally higher amounts over the next 7 days with the highest totals accumulating Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Cold front finally passes on Wednesday. High near 88°F on Tuesday and 83°F on Wednesday.

Thursday: We finally start to dry out and clear out. Rain chance is only 20% for early in the day. High will be near 83°F, but the morning will be cooler in the low and mid 60s.
