Black Friday: Showers and storms will increase in coverage and intensity as the day progresses. Some storms may be strong to severe. There is a Marginal Risk (threat level 1 out of 5) for severe weather today. The main threat will be damaging wind, hail, and heavy rain, but a tornado cannot be ruled out. We need to monitor for the potential for training thunderstorms, which could lead to flash flooding issues. Otherwise, it will be warm, cloudy, and muggy with highs in the mid and upper 70s.
Saturday: Scattered showers and storms are expected at times, but storm intensity should be low. Cloudy skies persist with highs in the 60s. Rain coverage and intensity will ramp up Saturday night and Sunday.
Sunday: Numerous to widespread showers and storms are expected. Some storms could be strong to severe on Sunday. We will also have to watch for isolated flash flooding issues. Rain totals look to be between 3-5″ with locally higher amounts. There is a Marginal Risk (threat level 1 out of 5) for severe weather on Sunday – Damaging wind, hail, heavy rain, and tornadoes will be possible. We will likely hit our high temperatures in the mid 60s early in the day on Sunday before temperatures tumble into the 50s. Winds will likely pick up. We’ll be sitting in the lower 40s by Monday morning.
