That chance of weaker spotty showers and storms is likely to continue into Friday morning.

A few showers and an isolated storm will linger over the area during the morning hours Friday and clear north and out before the afternoon. Highs will reach near 90 degrees along with a brisk south wind at 15-25 mph gusting to 35 mph. There is the small threat of an isolated evening storms west of the metro Friday but an additional rain will likely hold off until after 11pm. Any storm west of the metro has the chance to be severe but nothing widespread is likely.

Saturday is a First Alert Day due to the greatest threat of severe weather in our area. Some showers and isolated storms are possible once again Saturday morning but nothing severe is likely with those. They'll move north and out leaving us with a somewhat pleasant afternoon.
