Thursday Night: Spring-like tomorrow; Severe weather Saturday morning

Weather

All modes of severe weather are possible for this event - long-tracked tornadoes, damaging winds (greater than 70 mph), large hail and heavy downpours.

Tonight – Clouds will increase overnight with the chance for some light rain. Lows near 63.

Tomorrow – Expect a spring-like day with mostly cloudy skies and windy conditions. Scattered thunderstorms are likely throughout the day. A Wind Advisory goes into effect tomorrow night as wind gusts will top 25 mph. Highs near 78.

SEVERE WEATHER – SATURDAY MORNING

TIME FRAME: 
Friday Night [midnight – 5:00 am]: Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms mainly for northwestern portions of the viewing area.

Saturday Morning [5:00 am – noon]: Thunderstorm activity increases in coverage with the main line of thunderstorms arriving mid-morning.


POTENTIAL THREAT:
All modes of severe weather are possible for this event – long-tracked tornadoes, damaging winds (greater than 70 mph), large hail and heavy downpours. Far northwest portions of the viewing area sit under an Enhanced Risk [3 out of 5] before 6:00 am on Saturday. The threat shifts to the east after 6:00 am. At that point, the entire viewing area will sit under an Enhanced Risk [3 out of 5]. The SPC has also placed us under a “hatched” area for Saturday morning. Which means, there is a 10% chance for tornadoes to reach EF-2 strength or greater, hail to top 2″ in diameter, and winds to exceed 75 mph. The concern for severe weather will last until early afternoon on Saturday.
