Dry Today before Storms Return on Saturday

Good Friday morning, WABBLES! After a day of severe weather across the region, we look to get a break in the action today. Fortunately, we avoided the worst of the severe weather with only a few hail and winds reports. We stay dry today but are watching the chance for strong storms to return Saturday.

No no no, not again...please! (Giphy)

Right now we are sitting in the mid-low 50s across the region under partly cloudy skies. Clouds are expected to slowly decrease through out the day leading to a relatively nice day.

Here is a look at all the storm reports from yesterday’s event.

Severe Threat Saturday

The Storm Prediction Center has placed us under a slight risk for severe weather on Saturday. Right now all threats will be on the tables including damaging winds, large hail, and possible tornadoes.

Storms will be possible just off to our south starting tomorrow morning, but the severe threat will not come until late Saturday. There are still uncertainties on timing and how strong storms will be, so continue to stay tuned through tomorrow. Temperatures will soar into the 70s Saturday afternoon.

Here is the rainfall forecast through the weekend. Potentially another 1-2in of rain with isolated 3in amounts. We will have to keep an eye on the flash flooding threat along side the severe threat.
