Weather

Tonight – Severe weather threat mainly after midnight. Storms will clear by daybreak. All types of severe weather are possible: damaging winds, heavy rain, lightning and even isolated tornadoes. A tornado watch will likely be issued for this evening. Have multiple ways to receive warnings. Make sure your cell phone is charged and the audio is turned on and up. That way, you’ll be able to hear weather alerts to stay safe. Lows near 64.

Tomorrow – Showers and storms will exit early. Expect some clearing. Temperatures remain mild. Highs near 83.

Extended – We’ve got a few busy days. A line of thunderstorms arrives overnight and has the potential to be strong to severe. Portions of the viewing area sit under a Slight Risk [2 out of 5] for severe weather. Storms will clear early tomorrow giving us a short break. However, another batch of thunderstorms returns Friday night into early Saturday. We already sit under a Slight Risk [2 out of 5] for severe weather. Threat could increase as we get closer. Sunday will be sunny and dry. Showers and storms return for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Cooler temperatures make an entrance by midweek. Temperatures become more seasonable.
