Warmer Weather To End The Week. Strong Storms Possible Saturday.

TODAY: Temperatures will climb into the 50s today as clouds build in from the west. South-southeast winds at 5-10 mph with some gusts as high as 15 mph. A light south-southeast wind continues overnight under mostly cloudy skies. An isolated shower can’t be ruled out after midnight. Lows in the mid to upper 40s.

FRIDAY: Scattered showers across the area on Friday, but this won’t be a washout. Winds will be out of the south-southwest at 5-15 mph with some gusts as high as 25 mph. Highs in the mid 60s Friday. A few showers will be possible overnight as well. Lows in the upper 50s.

SATURDAY: A cold front approaches from the west Saturday, triggering numerous thunderstorms. Some storms could be strong to severe. We’re still working out the timing and threats somewhat, but right now it appears all modes of severe weather will be possible, including damaging straight line winds, hail, and perhaps a few tornadoes. There remain some questions about where the combination of best shear and instability will be, but we should have enough of both to support at least a few strong to severe storms in our area. Timing remains a bit unclear, but that should become more clear over the next day or two. Highs in the low 70s Saturday, with lows in the 50s.

SUNDAY: Staying dry, with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s. Overnight lows in the upper 40s.

MON/TUE/WED: A few showers will be possible Monday, with perhaps an isolated shower or two Tuesday. Highs in the low 60s Monday and upper 60s Tuesday. By Wednesday, our next cold front approaches, bringing with it another chance for strong to severe storms. For now, we’re still too far out to know any specifics, but we will have to monitor the Wednesday setup closely.
