Thursday’s PM Forecast Update 6/8

Weather Blog
From the KX Storm Center:    
 
Another round of sunshine & warm temps today and it is a bit breezy. This dry weather pattern continues with a few changes on the way. Tomorrow will be hot with temps warming above average and into a record-breaking range. Highs will be in the mid to upper 90s with a few triple-digits possible. Stronger winds continue and rain chances come back into the forecast. In fact, there is a slight risk for severe weather Friday afternoon & Friday night. Scattered thunderstorms will move through the state in a couple of different waves. The first with spark up with afternoon heating and high dew points. By late Friday evening, rain will be moving out. After significant daytime heating and with continued high dew points, another round of rain & thunderstorms will be possible Friday night. That being said, model guidance is changing almost every run and the different models are not agreeing this afternoon. So, the timing may change. That being said, extreme heating & more humidity will prime the environment for thunderstorms & there will be a potential for severe weather.
A slight risk means that scattered severe storms are possible. Most of them will be short lived & not widespread with a few isolated storms becoming intense. Expect reports of strong wind & some damage with hail around 1″ & up to 2″ possible.
At this point, we are monitoring the risk for severe weather, tomorrow. Unless there is a big change in the next few model runs, we will wait until Friday to activate the first stage of our Aware-Alert-Action plan. The Aware stage means that there is a potential for severe weather. If any warnings are issued, we will move to the Alert stage so you know that severe weather is imminent for parts of our area.
This weekend, rain scattered rain/storms are expected Friday night, Saturday Night/Sunday & Sunday night. Needless to say, an active weather pattern will pick up. However, widespread significant rainfall totals will hold off until next week. A few of our long-range models are suggesting that it is possible. 
 
Tonight, mostly clear to partly cloudy & a little breezy with a few isolated areas of rain possible. Lows in the 50s & 60s with an East wind 5-15mph. 10% chance of rain.
 
Friday will be hot,  a little humid & breezy. There is a chance for rain & thunderstorms with a slight risk for severe weather. Highs in the mid to upper 90s with a few areas into the triple digits. East/South wind 10-20mph G30 with a 40% chance of rain.
 
Friday night, slight risk for severe weather with continued rain chances. Partly to mostly cloudy & mild. Lows in the 50s & 60s with a South/NW wind 5-15mph G30. 20% chance of rain.
 
Saturday, not as hot with more sunshine & stronger wind. Highs in the 80s with a few 70s and a NW wind 15-25mph. 20% chance of rain.
 
Saturday night, scattered rain & a few thunderstorms. Lows in the 50s with a few 60s and a light NW wind. 30% chance of rain.
