Chances for strong storms this holiday weekend; Cooler air arrives next week


  • Few storms possible tonight & Saturday
  • Severe weather possible Sunday
  • Cooler air arrives next week



FRIDAY: Late this evening into tonight, a few storms may hold together long enough to make it in from Indiana. These storms, where they do occur, are expected to bring mainly heavy rain and occasional cloud to ground lightning. A damaging wind gust is possible, but the risk is low. Lows tonight drop into the middle 60s.

SATURDAY: Feeling like summertime on Saturday. Partly cloudy, warm with highs in the lower 80s. It will be a bit muggy. A few storms may develop on Saturday afternoon.

SUNDAY: Sunday brings our best chance for severe weather. Two rounds of storms are possible on Sunday. One Sunday afternoon with another round possible Sunday evening into Sunday night. It’s the second round that will feature the best chance for strong to severe storms.

Damaging winds will be the biggest severe weather threat. Large hail and/or an isolated tornado will also be possible. In addition to the severe weather threats, these storms look to be very heavy rain producers. Flash flooding may become a concern overnight Sunday night as storms have the potential to train over the same locations dropping a lot of rain in a short amount of time. Highs Sunday reach the lower 80s.

MONDAY (MEMORIAL DAY): Partly cloudy with a chance for showers. An isolated thunderstorm is also possible. Highs in the upper 70s.

TUESDAY: Partly cloudy with another chance for a few showers. Cooler with highs in the lower 70s

WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs in the low to mid 70s.

THURSDAY: Sunny and comfortable weather with highs in the upper 60s.

FRIDAY: Sunny and nice with highs in the middle 70s.
