Good Saturday, folks. We are facing a potent storm system that rolls our way as we head into Sunday. This is going to be a major wind maker that may feature strong or severe thunderstorms by the end of the day.
The weather ahead of this storm will be windy and warm today with temps making a run into the middle 60s. We will have a mix of sun and clouds with scattered showers a possibility. Here’s your network of radars:
We may see rounds of showers and thunderstorms blowing up late tonight into early Sunday. We should see our skies clear a bit by the afternoon and that will allow for the atmosphere to destabilize and lead to a line of strong and severe storms by evening. The latest NAM simulated radar shows this well:
Damaging wind will be the primary threat from this line of storms. There is a small threat for a tornado… especially to our west and northwest.
Even without thunderstorms, winds may gust to 40mph or greater during the day and evening hours.
I will have another update on this threat later today. Make it a great Saturday and take care.
