Good Friday, everyone. We have another windy and warm day in store for the region, but a few thunderstorms try to crash the spring party for some. Beyond today, we have a couple of storm systems on the way from Saturday night through Wednesday.
Temps today are the big storm. The west and south can settle into the 80-85 degree range, while the north shoots for the low and middle 70s. That’s an area where we have a shot at a few storms going up. There’s still the chance for a few strong storms in the north. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:
As we head into Saturday, we have another very windy and warm day taking shape on a strong southwest flow.

Again, that risk would roll east into the wee hours of Sunday morning. High winds are the main threat and the EURO is spitting out some 50mph gusts:
After a calm Monday, the next system rolls in here to end March and kick start April:
I leave you with your tracking toys for the day:
