We enjoyed a very pleasant, dry, and sunny Saturday before the thunderstorms roll in Saturday night. Widespread thunderstorms will move into the area around 8pm Saturday night and will likely last until early Sunday morning. The rain will be moderate to heavy at times. Our biggest threats we are looking at are heavy rainfall, damaging winds, and hail. Wind gusts could reach up to 40-50 mph. A few scattered showers may linger through the morning on Sunday before clearing out. Temperatures will be cooler on Sunday with highs in the mid 50s. Temperatures will be on the cool side to start off next week with highs in the low 60s.
