Better ingredients to see showers and a few isolated storms later in the day. Scattered showers and storms look most likely starting after 2PM into the early evening with mostly dry conditions before lunchtime. Rain that develops will be moving south to north. Storms will be hit or miss across the region today, so some will see rain, while others could stay completely dry. Some afternoon storms that do develop could contain strong damaging winds, large hail, heavy dounpours. Winds will be out of the south between 5-10 mph. Highs today will be close to 80.

Lows on Saturday will be close to 60 and afternoon highs will be close to 80. The first half of Saturday should be dry with rain chances going up as we head later into the afternoon and Saturday night. Coverage of rain is expected to be scattered again, so some could stay dry while others see storms. Winds will be a little breezy out of the south-southwest between 10-15 mph.

A cold front finally moves through Sunday, which will push rain chances east of the area during the day. An isolated shower can’t be ruled out Sunday morning. Most of Sunday currently looks dry with partly cloudy skies and highs close to 80 in the afternoon. Winds will be a little breezy out of the west between 10-15 mph.

Nice spring like weather expected early next week with abundant sun and highs in the mid 80s Monday and Tuesday afternoon.
