Strong storms expected for Friday evening

Posted May 22, 2017

Extended: Monday will bring us similar temperatures, and another chance for scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms.

"Maybe we'll have storms, and if we do, they'll be bad - but then there's that maybe part, which makes it complicated", said Trevor Boucher, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Most areas should see anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of rain over the next couple of days, with higher totals possible in some spots. Low around 55. South wind around 9 miles per hour. Highs will reach the mid to upper 70s Saturday.

Tuesday night, a 40 percent chance of showers, mainly after 8 p.m.

The chance of showers and thunderstorms is at 30 percent Sunday and Sunday night.

It will be mostly sunny and in the mid-60s on Tuesday. Our muggy and very warm pattern rolls on, with showers and thunderstorms jumping into the mix. Friday night will be mostly clear as lows creep back to the lower 60s. Look for the threat for showers or thunderstorms to stick around into Saturday night. In late May it probably means relatively frequent raindrops and the potential for some severe weather at times.

Tonight will be warm and muggy with the low dropping to 68 Thursday morning.

Several more chances of rain and storms exist in the forecast into next week. Following a few morning showers Monday, we dry up and improve.

Friday: Mostly cloudy. Isolated shower. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 64.

Fri: High: 82 Low: 62 Mostly sunny to partly cloudy. South wind 6 to 8 miles per hour.

Tonight: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms before 9pm.

Partly cloudy skies and dry weather should be found for Sunday and Monday. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 62. Partly sunny, with a high near 73.
