ALERT DAYS This Weekend

We continue to watch a warm front that will lift into the region this weekend as low pressure works northeast toward the region. The low will pull several surges of moisture northward in the form of showers and t-storms. 

Our first round arrives Friday night. Look for scattered shower and t-storms during the evening. Showers and t-storms will become more numerous as we head into the overnight. We could see areas of heavy rain. A few stronger storms are possible, with the main threats being large hail adn to a lesser extent, damaging winds. Look fro lows in the 40s. 

Both Saturday and Sunday are ALERT DAYS. While there's a small chance that we could see a storm or two with some hail and gusty winds, the main concern will be the potential for flooding. There will be periods of showers and a few thunderstorms on Saturday, and then more widespread rain on Sunday. During this time period, 2"-4" of rain will be possible in spots. Please keep this in mind if you reside in a flood prone area. Also, make sure you have your News8000 First Alert Weather app on hand this weekend as we'll keep you updated as the rain moves through

Looking Ahead... The rain will end Sunday night and into the start of the new work and school week. We'll see a mix of clouds and sun on Monday, but temps will be cool in the low 60s for highs. 

After one dry day, our active pattern picks up again beginning Tuesday with rain likely on Wednesday with cool temps in the upper 50s. 

Warmer temperatures move back into the region by Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the 70s. However, the warm up will come with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. 

The chance of a few showers and storms will then continue next weekend with temps in the mid 70s.
