PM Update: Sun Returns; Storms Tonight
More warmth and thunderstorm chances Saturday
At long last, we have been graced with sunshine today. Said sun has helped temperatures soar into the upper 70s to near 80 this afternoon -- a much needed respite from the recent rain. Just a few isolated showers are possible through evening before a larger complex of showers and storms - which may be intense - threatens later tonight.
Tonight: After a remote (20%) chance of isolated showers or storms this evening (mainly north of town), rain chances increase overnight. Much of the area should (60% chance) get some showers and even some embedded strong thunderstorms, which may contain gusty winds and very heavy rain. The general range for places seeing rain should be .25"-.50", but a few locations could see 1"+. Temperatures are likely to fall to between 60 and 65 overnight.
Tomorrow (Saturday): Clouds and showers may persist into the beginning of the day (through mid-morning), but we should at least partially clear out before noon. By late afternoon, there will again be a risk of isolated thunderstorms (1-in-3 chance) -- some of which could be severe. We look to take one more step up on the temperature ladder, so low 80s should do it, maybe even mid-80s if we see a lot of sun.
