The sunshine will return by late Saturday afternoon into Sunday as temperatures continue to warm up into the 70s and 80s into early next week. We’ll have another chance of showers & storms mid to late week.

FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy skies during the day. Maybe a stray shower by late afternoon but looking to stay mostly dry through sunset. Highs warming up into the upper 60s to near 70 degrees. SE winds 5-10 mph.

FRIDAY NIGHT-SATURDAY: Rain showers will become more steady after 10pm and could be heavy at times during the overnight hours into Saturday morning. Rainfall amounts could be anywhere from 1-3+ inches. The main severe weather threat appears to remain along and south of I-20, but we can’t rule out some gusty winds and lightning. Spotty showers or storms will remain possible Saturday morning. Those could be strong to possibly severe with gusty winds, hail and heavy downpours. Can’t rule out a brief spin up. We’ll be watching things. Highs in the mid 70s.
