Friday Morning: Strong to severe storms possible late Friday – early Saturday; Much nicer on Sunday

Weather

Today & Tonight: A few spotty showers are possible during the morning and afternoon, but most of the day will be dry. During the evening hours through early Saturday morning, our rain chances will increase. The SPC has placed our area under an Enhanced (threat level 3 of 5) and Slight Risk (threat level 2 of 5) for severe weather. All modes of severe weather will be possible, but winds will be the main concern. Window of opportunity will most likely be Friday evening through daybreak Saturday, but storms could pop a bit earlier or later, as well. Timeframe should roughly be between 6 PM and 6 AM, but storms can pop up before or after that window. The most intense storms should stay to our north and northwest. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, warm, and breezy conditions with highs in the mid and upper 70s. Morning temperatures will only be in the 60s.


Make sure you have multiple ways to receive warnings and ones that will wake you up! Have that safe place ready to go for you, your family, and pets.

Saturday: Early morning strong to severe storms are possible. Cold front should pass by the afternoon. Until then, storms will have the potential to pop. Saturday will not be a complete and total washout. We are expecting mainly dry conditions by the afternoon. Highs in the low and mid 80s. Overnight temperatures will be back down in the 50s.

Sunday: Sunny skies return and it will be warm and not as humid. High near 81. Overnight temperature near 56.

Next Week: The work week starts off on a dry note, but storms will return by midweek. Highs will be in the low and mid 80s.
