Storms possible for parts of the state today

While we aren’t included on the national severe risk map issued by the Storm Prediction Center first thing this morning we will have a chance for some intense storms and rain today.  At this point it looks like the window for rain will be from about 2pm through the evening hours tonight when a weak line of storms could be possible.  Destructive winds along with large hail will be possible.  We cannot rule out a low category (ef0 – ef1) tornado also being possible.

High temperatures today will easily reach the 80s.  Some model data shows us hitting the upper 80s today but most show us in the mid to low 80s.  We have decided to be rather conservative with our temperature prediction and are going for highs in the mid-80s.  Overcast skies, light winds and the threat for rain this afternoon backs up a high in the mid-80s.

Rain chances will persist through Saturday with the heaviest rain likely arriving on Friday night.  Model data shows us seeing anywhere from a half inch to a full inch of rain.  Enjoy your day!
