Rusty's Evening Forecast - Warm & humid tonight, First Alert Day with storms Saturday.

By  | 

Warmth and humidity will be reinforced by strong south winds the rest of day and into the overnight. Any storm activity is likely to stay west of our area until after midnight. If any can drift west after midnight, they will be weaker and spotty. A few will try to linger Saturday morning.

After those spotty early morning showers exit, A First Alert Day is in place Saturday afternoon and evening due to the threat of more storms developing. The greatest likelihood of severe weather will be south and east of the metro but there is a growing chance of rain and storms moving into the area after 3pm. Those will last into the evening and early overnight before exiting east. That threat of severe weather includes the potential for large hail, strong wind gusts, frequent lightning and heavy downpours. Factor that in to any outdoor plans you have Saturday afternoon and evening.

Sunday starts with a few leftover showers but they'll exit quickly. That will leave us mostly cloudy and cooler with highs only making it into the lower 60s. Northwest winds will be a bit breezy too.
