First Alert Forecast: Pleasant weather through mid-week, storms return into the weekend

High pressure is building in to the region behind this morning’s cold front, leaving us with cooler and sunnier conditions! Temperatures will top out around the 60° mark this afternoon, but will quickly fall into the low 30s into the overnight period.

Our cold conditions will be short-lived, however, as our area of high pressure shifts east and winds return out of the south. For this reason, anticipate well-above average temperatures through the start of the weekend.

A warm front will be lifting through the state Friday, allowing for the scattered potential for showers and storms (some strong-severe), all before our next low pressure system moves into the region.

An ALERT DAY has been issued for Saturday as all of the ingredients we look for in terms of forecasting severe weather do seem to be in place... Timing looks to be the first half of Saturday, with all threats possible. Just keep in mind this could change as we get closer and closer. Stay tuned for frequent updates and be sure to stay weather aware this weekend!

First Alert Forecast: quiet, seasonable Tuesday; storms late week
