Although summer is over and fall is here, temperatures have still been 10-15 degrees above the average high and low of 60/40. Because of the higher temperatures, severe thunderstorms are possible on Saturday due to a strong cold front moving through. Saturday has been named a StormTracker 2 Alert Day because of the possibility of severe weather.
The wet conditions start on Friday. Scattered showers are possible starting in the morning hours on Friday before the cold front. As the cold front accelerates into our area on Saturday afternoon, the possibility of severe thunderstorms will develop. The main concern is thunder, lightning, and wind.
After the cold front moves through Saturday evening, showers will remain in the area for Sunday. The temperatures for Sunday and the upcoming week will be much lower and much more seasonable. Dry conditions look to return on Wednesday.
