More Thunderstorms Expected At Times Tonight; A Very Active Weather Day Is Expected On Sunday

For Tonight: We are in a lull in the thunderstorm activity as I write this. It looks like another round of scattered thunderstorms will initiate by early this evening across the entire area. These thunderstorms look like they will persist through the overnight hours of tonight. While it is not expected to rain the entire time tonight, there appears to be two time frames to watch for thunderstorm activity. The first will be from about 6 pm until about 10 pm this evening with a second round of thunderstorms possible from about 2 am to about 5 am. Heavy downpours with instances of flash flooding and frequent lightning look to be the main threat from thunderstorms tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be between 65 and 70 Degrees. Winds will be South at 5 to 10 mph. Saturday: A very warm and humid day is expected on Saturday with partly sunny skies expected. An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible during the afternoon, however, most areas should stay dry during Saturday. High temperatures will be near 85 Degrees. Winds will be South at 5 to 10 mph. Sunday: Very active weather in the way of heavy rain, flash flooding and strong to severe thunderstorms is expected on Sunday. A frontal boundary is expected to stall right over the region during Sunday and Sunday night. Very humid tropical air will stream northeastward into the region. In fact, the amount of moisture that’ll be available to wring out on Sunday will be well above average for this time of year. Given the combination of lots of available moisture, an unstable atmosphere and a very saturated ground, I think that the flash flood threat on Sunday and Sunday night is extremely high across the entire area. Heavy showers and thunderstorms are anticipated to overspread the area shortly after sunrise Sunday morning. Several rounds of heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected to affect the entire area during the day on Sunday. Rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches with local amounts of up to 3-4 inches are expected during the day on Sunday. In addition to the heavy rainfall threat, there is also the possibility for a few of the thunderstorms to be on the strong side. Main threat from any strong storms will be very gusty winds, which could be an issue in terms of tree damage. The reason why is because the trees are much more susceptible to being blown down due to the very saturated ground. So, isolated tree damage with isolated power outages are a possibility. High temperatures will be between 80 and 85 Degrees. Winds will be South at 10 to 20 mph.
