The severe weather and flooding threat has ended for our area. There have been dozen of tornado reports with more trickling in from the National Weather Service offices in the region. As of 6 pm Wednesday, there have been over 40 tornado (preliminary) reports from Tuesday and Wednesday. Wind, flash flooding, and hail reports have been lower than tornado reports thus far.

Tonight: Clouds will clear tonight and temperatures will dip down into the low and mid 40s.

Thursday: Much cooler, mostly sunny, and breezy at times with highs in the lower and mid 60s for most areas.  Overnight temperatures will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s. 

Friday – Sunday: Temperatures will be in the 60s on Friday. Clouds will return to the area and high temperatures will only be in the 50s over the weekend. A light freeze will be possible Saturday night and Sunday morning. A few showers may be possible Saturday and Sunday, but we will leave rain chances at 10 percent or less for now.

Next Week: We have the potential for a couple of passing disturbances next week. One will likely move into the region Monday and into Tuesday. Highs look to stay in the 50s and 60s. We may have even colder air move in late in the week and into Christmas weekend.
