FORECAST: Rain, Storms and Even Severe Weather This Weekend

View The Original Article Here

Saturday morning we wake up to some patchy fog with mild conditions, lows only dropping into the lower 60’s. Scattered showers and storms are possible through the day. An isolated strong thunderstorm is possible through the afternoon. All day Saturday will come with a chance for showers BUT it will NOT rain all day. Highs will reach the mid to the upper 70’s tomorrow accompanied by the humid feel to the air.  

Eventually, a cold front that stall to our west tonight will make its final push into our area on Sunday. Half of our area is under an enhanced risk (via the Storm Prediction Center). This according to our key is a high risk and one that needs to be taken seriously. This means that we have the potential for widespread strong to severe storms. Damaging winds and heavy rain will be the main threats to keep an eye on BUT areas mainly west could potentially have some rotating storms so, tornadoes are possible Sunday. This is a day you need to be weather aware and keep an eye to the sky.
