First Alert Forecast: Nice today, most of tomorrow... ALERT DAY Easter Sunday
Severe Weather Likely Sunday (Source: WLBT)

We have really nice conditions across the area after yesterday’s cold front moved south of us! High temperatures this afternoon will only be able to top out in the upper 60s and we’ll stay dry and mainly sunny all day.

Colder conditions are on the way for the overnight period with many of us waking up to the mid 40s Saturday morning... Temperatures will warm to the mid 70s Saturday afternoon before a few showers and storms start to lift into the region tomorrow evening.

While scattered storms are expected to move north through our area into the early Sunday morning hours and a few of those could be strong, we’ll be most concerned with the storms that form during the day/early PM.

Easter Sunday is an ALERT DAY as severe weather is likely. Now is the time to go ahead and think about where you’ll go if a tornado warning or severe t’storm warning is issued & call a storm shelter to check availability if needed. Damaging wind gusts, large hail, tornadoes, & heavy rain are all possible Sunday and we’ll need to make sure we’re staying weather aware through the day! Grab the First Alert Wx App if you haven’t already so you can hear forecast updates as we get them!

Fortunately, much calmer and nicer weather returns for the rest of the 7-day forecast.
