First Alert: More showers and storms, even ahead of an Alert Day for Saturday

  • Friday brings scattered rain and storms to parts of the Midlands. The rain could be heavy at times.
  • Saturday is an Alert Day. We could see a few strong late day storms as a cold front pushes in.
  • Heavy rain, gusty winds and hail will be possible Saturday evening and night.
  • More unsettled weather trickles into the Midlands next week, with daily rain and storm chances.
  • Highs will be in the 80s and 90s over the next several days.

We have several days of unsettled weather on the way, including an Alert Day for Saturday for the potential for strong storms.

As we move through your Thursday night, a few showers will be possible for a few communities as a stationary front remains to our south. This setup will keep our weather unsettled tonight and through the day Friday. Otherwise, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies tonight. Lows will be in the low to mid 70s.

For Friday, a weak area of low pressure will ride along the front and help push more scattered showers and storms in our direction through the morning and afternoon.  Some of the rain could be heavy, especially for areas along and east of I-95.  Some rain and storms will likely move into the Central Midlands through the day, so keep that in mind. Otherwise, we'll see mostly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the upper 80s.

Saturday is an Alert Day. As the stationary front dissolves and moves away, that will allow another cold front to move into the area from the west by Saturday evening and night. We'll likely see dry conditions for most of the day. However, late in the day, we'll be on radar watch as showers and storms approach the Midlands. Some could be strong to severe, with damaging winds, hail and heavy rain. Again, a good portion of your Saturday will be dry with some sunshine. Highs will be in the low 90s.

More wet weather is in your Sunday forecast with highs around 93.  Even more unsettled weather moves in next week, with daily scattered rain and storms chances. Highs will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s next week.
