After a few morning showers — skies will be showing a gradual clearing throughout the day, but only to a partly cloudy sky for most. It’ll warm up to the lower to mid 80s across the state and then a chance of showers and thunderstorms do exist for the south central region of the state. At this time it looks like just a few storms can become strong — low severe chances– storms will clear up by the overnight hours. This weekend will remain quiet through Saturday then a few waves of energy come through there will be another round of severe weather. Large hail and damaging winds are the biggest threats at this point — this will also likely change between now and then. Once the storms pass the temperatures will cool back into the 70s – closer to average — this will also go for the rest of the work week. An average high temperature for mid May is around 70 degrees and lows in the mid 40s.
Friday, a partly cloudy sky for most and highs in the lower to mid 80s. Winds south at 5-15 mph.
Friday night, lows around 60 degrees and a few clouds. Winds light and variable.
Saturday, beautiful sunny skies, highs in the 80s and winds east/southeast at 5-15 mph.
Saturday night, a few clouds with a southeast wind at 5-15 mph. Lows in the 60s.
Sunday, evening showers and thunderstorms are possible with large hail and damaging winds. Highs in the 80s with gusty winds at 30 mph and sustained at 10-20 mph from the south then shifting west.
