Very Active Start to the Weekend

A very dynamic spring storm system is expected to bring all kinds of weather to the region beginning this afternoon and lasting through much of the weekend.

A strong warm front lies to the south of us this morning and it will be on the move to the north this afternoon. Depending on how far north it advances, some of us could potentially see our first 70-degree temperatures of the year today.

That front will serve as the focus for numerous rounds of showers and storms by this evening. Some of those storms could briefly become strong with hail and heavy rain into the overnight hours. The more substantial severe weather risk will remain to the west of the area.

 

Showers and storms continue on and off Saturday before enough cold air works in for Sunday to switch some of the rain to snow. Not looking at much for accumulation there.

We'll remain sharply colder into the beginning of next week, so I hope you enjoyed the warmth Thursday!
