Friday Night: Mainly dry Saturday; Severe thunderstorm threat for Sunday

Weather

Tonight – Gray skies and mostly dry. Slightly cooler. Lows near 66.

Tomorrow – Cloudy with some filtered sunshine. Mainly dry. Highs near 81.

Extended – The weather pattern in the coming days will be somewhat unsettled. We’ll see multiple rounds of rain through Wednesday. However, not every day will be a complete loss. Storms will be hit or miss for Saturday. Strong to severe thunderstorms are likely for Sunday afternoon and evening. We now sit under a Slight Risk [2 of 5] for severe weather. All types of severe weather are possible with damaging winds and heavy rain the greatest threats. Expect spotty rain on Monday. Showers and storms return Tuesday and Wednesday with another cold front.

We’ll see roughly 2-5″ for most locations over the next five days. Widespread flooding is not likely; however, some localized areas may see some ponding water. Please drive with caution and avoid high water.

Temperatures will retreat back to normal for a few days before bouncing back into the upper 80s. Another cold front drives in a cooler and more comfortable pattern for next weekend.
