Weekend Storm Chances

May 19, 2017: Here comes more active weather as we kick off the weekend. For the most part, we’ll see regular showers and thunderstorms. There is a chance for a one or two stronger storms into the afternoon, however.

The active weather is set up by a warm front pushing into the Stateline. Look how temperatures rebound from the upper 40’s on Friday to the low 70’s in a few spots on Saturday.

Most of the morning round of showers and storms moves in between 7 am and 12 pm. We may get a few downpours from time to time, but severe weather should stay away during the early hours.

Into the afternoon, there is a low risk for severe weather. This risk is on the lowest end of the scale, but still leaves us with a chance for one or two strong to severe storms.

This is dependent on what the morning showers and storms do. If they linger enough into the afternoon or keep cloud cover around, we should avoid severe weather. Clearing or some sunshine could energize the atmosphere enough to create strong storms. The higher severe risk looks to be mostly southeast of us, however.

Even if we don’t see severe weather, storms and showers may persist on-and-off around our area.

Drier weather is coming for Sunday, which is a good sight to see!
