Weekend forecast and spring storm thoughts

March 17, 2017: Say goodbye to winter for a while! Spring temperatures are here to stay through at least next week, which bodes well for the weekend forecast. A cold front will slide through Friday night, which means conditions won’t be as warm as Friday, but they will still be comfortable for this time of year.

Radar valid 8 PM Friday (March 17, 2017). A cold front cools things off for the weekend.

Highs on Saturday will be right on average for mid-March, with Sunday looking gorgeous.

Sunday night is starting to look interesting. Another cold front approaches from the northwest, triggering showers and possibly a few thunderstorms for Sunday night.

There’s enough energy building up that strong to severe thunderstorms are possible. Large hail would be the main threat if they do brew up. Most of those should stay in Iowa, but a few could bleed over into northern Illinois during the night.

Storm threats for Sunday night

While the risk is pretty low for severe weather Sunday night, park the car and move anything else outside into the garage, just in case! Have a great weekend!
