Friday Night: Severe thunderstorms after midnight; Stay weather aware

Weather

Tonight – A band of strong to severe thunderstorms arrives after midnight [2:00 am – 8:00 am]. All types of severe weather are possible: damaging winds [70+ mph], large hail [1.00+”], heavy rain [2-3″], frequent lightning and isolated tornadoes [mainly EF-0 – EF-1]. Localized flash flooding could be an issue as storms converge over our area and balloon up. Rainfall rates could be quite intense. Have multiple ways to receive warnings since the timing is terrible. Charge your cell phone. To hear alerts, make sure the volume is all the way up before heading to bed. Have a game plan in case of emergency. Lows near 67.

Tomorrow – Storms will exit by mid-morning. Some spotty rain will be possible through early afternoon. Clouds will clear by late day. Highs near 81.

Extended – The sun returns for Sunday. We get a short break from the rain for about 48 hours. We move back into an unsettled weather pattern by Tuesday. Expect multiple rounds of rain with the possibility of more severe weather Tuesday and Wednesday.

Temperatures will sit slightly cooler for much of next week. Highs will remain in the 70s.
