Friday: A storm system will begin to approach our area from the west. We we likely start seeing spotty showers and storms late in the morning before storms become more scattered to numerous late in the day/evening and overnight. The SPC has placed our area under a Slight and Marginal Risk for severe weather. All modes of severe weather will be possible.

Overnight temperatures will be in the mid 60s.
