Friday Morning: Very warm and humid with spotty storms; Severe and heavy rain threat tonight into Saturday

Weather

Today: Areas of fog early this morning. Partly to mostly cloudy, warm, and breezy today with highs in the low and mid 80s. Rain chance is around 30-40%. There may be a few spotty storms around this afternoon, but most will likely stay dry. If storms develop, they will have the potential to be quite strong and produce gusty wind, heavy rain, and hail.

Tonight & Saturday: Rain chances ramp up late tonight/overnight through Saturday morning. We will have to watch for potentially two rounds of strong to severe storms.

SPC has our area under an Enhanced (threat level 3 of 5) and Slight Risk (2 of 5) for severe weather. Again, mainly for overnight and into early Saturday morning. Damaging wind in excess of 60-70 mph will be the primary concern, but large hail and tornadoes will be possible, as well. Heavy rain will also be a concern. We could easily see widespread rain totals of around 1-3″, but locally higher amounts over 3-5″ will be possible in some spots, which could lead to some flash flooding. Rain chance is 80% Friday night, and 70% Saturday morning. There may be rain around at least until the late afternoon and evening hours until a front passes. Highs will be in the lower 80s on Saturday.

Sunday: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy and quiet! We will stay on the dry side with highs near 80. Morning temperatures will be in the mid 50s.

Next Week: Storm chances return each day. Highs will be in the 70s and 80s.
