March 16: Warm Weekend-Storms Monday

Wow what a Friday! The afternoon high soared to 73°.  Sunshine and a south wind helped to warm things up.  Monday will be a very different day as strong to severe storms could develop, more on that in a moment.  Let’s talk about the weekend weather first.

Decreasing clouds Saturday will allow for a brighter afternoon. That’ll cause temperatures to climb into the upper 70s, even near 80. Perfect weather for St. Patrick’s Day fun around the mid state.

Sunday will be mostly dry. Sunday night, more rain and thunderstorms will move in.

Monday will become partly sunny, with the threat of thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening.  A 4WARN Weather Alert in effect for late Monday due to the potential for strong-severe thunderstorms.  If it warms enough outdoors Monday afternoon, thunderstorms with damaging wind gusts, large hail, and isolated tornadoes will be possible. At this point the most likely timing is in a  window from 2pm to 10pm.
