Saturday Blog: Great weekend but thunderstorms Sunday night. -Doug

I hope you had a great week and ready for the weekend!  The weekend looks really nice for most of it.  After a morning freeze, Saturday looks great.

Saturday

Sunday the winds return and the temps really warm into the mid to upper 70s.

Sunday

We need to watch Sunday evening and night as a band of showers and thunderstorms form along a cold front shifting through.  The storms will fire along the front and then lift north of the front through the night.  However, the ones that fire along the front could be strong to severe.  Main threat here would be large hail and gusty winds.

Sunday Evening

As we continue through the evening.  A big batch of storms will push through the area.

Sunday Night

On the south side of this cluster, mainly along and south of I-44 will have the best shot for stronger storms.  Lets watch this and I will keep you updated this weekend.  Showers and thunderstorms last until early Monday, then any severe threat shifts south.  We do have another wave late Tuesday and into Wednesday with additional thunderstorms.  Some of those could be strong to severe as well.  Long range forecast is below.
