Strong to possibly severe thunderstorms in the forecast

An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible throughout the rest of the afternoon and into the early evening. Any storms that form and hold together as a warm front slides into the area may prove to be strong to severe. However, this time frame is not the greatest chance for severe.

The greater potential of strong to severe storms arrives late tonight into early Saturday morning. We are forecasting a MEDIUM risk of severe weather during this time frame.

Main threats will be large hail, damaging winds, and flash flooding from very heavy rain. A couple tornadoes cannot be ruled out. Stay tuned to WGEM on your favorite platforms – radio, TV, mobile and web, for the latest updates throughout the day and tonight.

Temperatures today begin to warm back up as that warm front slides through. Highs will begin to climb into the mid 80s. Mid to upper 80s are expected this weekend with the lower 90s for early next week and increased humidity.

Unsettled weather with scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected throughout the weekend. A few of these storms may be on the strong to severe side.

Things dry out a bit early next week, but showers and storms cannot be ruled out, especially as we head into mid next week.

Chief Meteorologist Mike Cole will have the latest on tonight and Saturday morning’s potential for strong storms coming up on WGEM News at Five, Six, and Ten.
