FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT
Cloudy and in the mid to upper-70s most of the day today. A very light rain chance in the afternoon and evening hours.
Saturday is still a little tricky to forecast, but at this point does not look like we will have any severe weather. It will be cloudy and in the low to mid-70s in the morning with a slight rain chance.
Cloudy conditions continue in the afternoon and evening with temps topping out at 80 degrees. Rain chances increase late in the day with storms possible in the late evening. Get prepared for storms as early as Saturday night, but expect the worst on Sunday at this point.
Scattered thunderstorms are possible in the early-morning hours as cloudy conditions continue. Low-70s.
SUNDAY LUNCHTIME THROUGH THE AFTERNOON
Much of the day looks like a total washout. 80 percent rain chance most of the day Sunday, especially midday into the afternoon. You need stay weather ready this weekend. Heavy downpours, possible hail, damaging winds and and the risk of an isolated tornado is not out of the question. Where the potential storms set up will almost be widespread.
