Saturday's Storms: what to expect this weekend

Saturday's Storms: what to expect this weekend

Sunshine will mix with a few high clouds Friday, making for a handsome sunset; let alone the great weather all day long. There is clearly a chance of rain Saturday morning, especially over west Alabama, but for now severe storms are not expected then.

Forecasters expect Saturday to be a washout and are concerned flooding and severe storms could come with it. With storms expected to fire near the Kansas City Metro and southwest Missouri early on in the afternoon, it's important to be alert through the day.

In those areas, the primary threats as of Wednesday will be large hail, damaging winds and possible tornadoes. Friday's highs get into the lower 80s with more sunshine. Late on Friday night we will be watching a line of storms coming in from the Hill Country. We could still have some lingering mainly-light showers into Saturday evening but even those should be wrapping up by before midnight. Southerly winds will be sustained 20-30 miles per hour with gusts up to 40-45 miles per hour possible.




While the overall number of severe weather events were below average a year ago, severe thunderstorms, flash flooding, and tornadoes were still responsible for five deaths and over $220 million in damages across the state of MI. Temperatures tumble through the weekend, 40's for highs, below freezing for lows. The accuracy increases the closer you get to a weather event.

In addition to the severe weather risk we may also see some areas pick up heavy rainfall, particularly across Louisiana/Arkansas. Nights will drop back to near freezing. We could see totals in excess of three to four inches in places. Temperatures will be falling through the 60s, and bottom out overnight in the middle and low 50.
