An alert day continues for tonight. Thunderstorms capable of producing damaging wind, hail & tornadoes are possible late this evening and into the overnight hours. While Thursday looks relatively quiet, Friday could turn active again by nightfall. There is the potential for multiple rounds of severe weather impacting our area Friday night into Saturday morning. As a result, Friday night will be another Alert Day for us due to the enhanced threat of severe weather. All forms of severe weather are possible with this weather event. It’s important to note, that the weather on Saturday should turn pleasant and remain the same on Sunday, so the weekend looks pretty nice at this point despite the threat of severe weather leading into it. Highs will be in the lower 80s and overnight lows in the 60s. Sunrise is 6:39am and the sunset is 7:25pm. Average high is 74 and the average low is 50 this time of year. South wind tonight at 10mph and southwest at about 15mph Thursday. There will be higher gusts. in and outside of thunderstorms.

We’ll dry out for our Thursday and even most of Friday, before yet another opportunity for severe weather arrives. The threat timing looks similar to what we’re seeing tonight and all threats are possible at this time. Another ALERT DAY has been issued for Friday evening to make sure everyone knows to stay weather aware ahead of time.

Fortunately the threat for severe weather won’t last all weekend long, in fact we’ll dry out quickly and a warm and dry weekend will ensue from there!
