High pressure sitting within the area is one of the big stories over the next 24 hours… allowing for warm temperatures to continue. Having said this, with windy and low humidity levels it does allow for the chance to see fires spread easily if any do start. Winds will remain on the gusty side for the overnight hours and then cooling down to the mid 40s for tonight — above average. Sunday, will have a sunny sky and temperatures in the 70s during the day. Then, there is a chance of thunderstorms for Sunday night — there is the potential to see severe storms given if the right conditions come together. If any storms do develop, it’ll be the wind being the main threat. Moderate hail is also possible — most of the thunderstorms would be in the southwest region then moving north, but weakening through the overnight hours. After this passes, another threat of severe weather could be in the southern part of the state Monday night. The rest of the week will have seasonable temperatures. An average high for late April is in the lower to mid 60s and lows in the mid 30s.
Tonight, clear skies and winds southeast at 10-20 mph. Lows in the mid 40s for most.
Sunday, sunny to start then increasing clouds from the southwest and the possibility to see developing severe weather. There is a marginal risk at this time. Winds south at 15-25 mph and highs in the 70s.
Sunday night, thunderstorms possible, otherwise, a partly to mostly cloudy sky. Winds southeast/northwest at 5-10 mph. Lows in the 40s.
Monday, light rain/thunderstorms possible later in the day and early morning. Winds northwest/north at 5-15 mph and highs in the 60s.
Monday night, cloudy with highs in the 50s. Winds north at 5-15 mph.
