Weekend outlook- 3 rounds of storms

July 10, 2015: Fans of hot, humid weather are going to be happy this weekend. By Sunday, we’ll be back in the upper 80’s, with the humidity making conditions feel like the 90’s.  Good weekend to hit the water or the pool!

Not so fast, though- make sure you are keeping an eye on the weather first. 3 rounds of t-storms are expected this weekend.

Our current thinking is this:

There’s a chance for scattered thunderstorms Saturday afternoon. These storms will not hit all areas, so many locations may stay dry Saturday evening. If you hear thunder, though, head indoors and wait for the storm to pass.  All thunderstorms are dangerous because of the lightning threat.

Round 2 is more likely than Round 1.  These storms get going Saturday night, and last into Sunday morning. Heavy rainfall is possible with this round, so there is some concern for flash flooding. Remember, if you see water over the road, do not drive into it! Find a different route. The 2nd round of storms may also bring some gusty winds all with them.  They should be out by later Sunday morning, so the rest of the day will be dry.

Finally, we’ll have to keep a close eye on Round 3. This round gets into our area by Sunday night, and lasts into early Monday. This is our best chance for severe weather, with strong winds possible, in addition to flooding rain. Have your weather radio on this weekend, but especially make sure it’s ready to go for Sunday night.

With all storms, it is best to head inside and wait until the storms pass. Check in with the 13 Weather Authority all weekend for updates!  Have a great weekend!
