Slight chance for severe weather today with wind and large hail the main concerns.

It’s going to be a stormy start to your weekend with severe weather possible both today and Saturday.  Overall there are three big concerns we have (hail, wind and flooding) as we head into the weekend with us also monitoring for isolated tornado.  Neither today nor Saturday will be a washout, but a couple of round of strong storms are expected to roll through by the time a cold front arrives and pushes through on Sunday morning.

For today, model data appears to show hail as the main concern.  While storms will be possible through the day the main window will begin at 4p and go through about 9p

Hail, Wind and Flooding are the main concerns for today and tomorrow.

tonight.  Highs today will be in the 80s again.  Yesterday we hit a high of 86° which was officially the hottest day of the year.  We are forecasting a high today of 83 degrees but it will depend on when rain arrives.

Like Friday, Saturday will not be a wash out with several rounds of rain and storms possible ahead of the passage of a cold front late Saturday night.  The frontal passage will put an end to our severe threat.  Unlike Friday, winds will likely be the main threat on Saturday followed by flooding.  Hail will still be a concern though.  We cannot rule out the possibilities of a tornado also developing.  Saturday’s high should hit 80 degrees.

The Saturday night cold front means cooler weather will set up for Sunday.  Sunday’s afternoon highs will be in the low 70s.  There may be some drizzle as the upper low slides by on Sunday.  Temperatures remain in the low 70s through Tuesday.  Temperatures will begin to warm up on Wednesday with a low chance for rain.
