Any showers will taper Friday morning, followed by mostly cloudy skies through afternoon (breaks for bits of sun at times with lots of low clouds around). Highs will run 58-65 over the area.
There will not be as much wind as what we had today.
After 40s Friday night, skies look partly cloudy Saturday with southeast to south-southeast, then south winds 10-20 mph.
Highs will run near 70 to the lower 70s.
Lows of 56-61 Saturday will give way to near 70 to the mid 70s Sunday.
It appears that there may be a wave of some scattered showers & isolated t'storms Sunday morning, followed by a break with sunshine.
Then, the main wave of rainfall & t'storms will develop & pass late afternoon-evening.
There is the potential of a couple isolated severe t'storms. Main risk is south of us, but we will monitor.
Sunday late afternoon-evening.........................
After dry weather Monday midday-Wednesday night, our attention turns to Thursday of next week.
Powerful storm system with a late-season winter storm with heavy snowfall & wind northwest of our area may bring severe weather outbreak to the Plains.
For us, we could get in on some severe weather risk Thursday............if the storm system tracks far enough northward, putting us into the warmer air.
Magnitude of severe risk is unclear. Shear & dynamics shown in model data supports risk here, but there is some question as to how much recycled more stable air will be pulled northwestward around surface high in Virginia & North Carolina. That is not an ideal spot for maximum transport of warm, moist, unstable air northward into our area.
We will monitor.
As we get into mid-April, multiple nights of frost & freezing are possible as colder pattern moves in.
However, much warmer pattern should follow with some severe weather risk.
