Tonight under mostly cloudy skies, a warm front will lift northward through the Tri-States bringing a chance of showers and storms later on in the overnight hours.
Storms may become severe in an isolated fashion and thus we have a LOW risk of severe weather in the forecast later tonight with damaging winds, large hail, and flash flooding the expected possible impact types.
Low temperatures will be in the 60s.
On Friday, mostly cloudy skies will be around in the morning with the chance of a shower or storm then skies become partly sunny with chances for afternoon showers and storms redeveloping.
The chances of severe weather increase later Friday into Friday night to a MEDIUM risk with all severe weather types being possible.
Heavy Rainfall, severe storm chances, and more unsettled weather will continue through the upcoming Memorial Day holiday weekend.
Area rivers are on the rise as well and the heavy rainfall in the week ahead will only cause further increases on the rivers.
Several chances of showers and storms will be possible into next week as our active weather pattern continues.
