Weather: Friday Storms, OK Weekend (6/22/2017)

Thursday ended up pretty perfect. The day started with lots of sun, low humidity and temperatures in the 50s & 60s. Clouds got thicker during the day while we stayed dry with highs in the 70s & 80s. Thursday night, things are changing, clouds are getting even thicker and rain is getting closer. Showers and a few thunderstorms will be with us overnight into early Friday. Don't expect severe weather but a few downpours are possible with lows in the mid 60s.

Friday, scattered showers and storms will be off and on for much of the day. Some storms after lunch may be strong to severe. Our biggest threats will be heavy rain, gusty winds, frequent lightning & hail. The severe threat is on the lower side thanks to clouds limiting how hot and unstable we can get. If clouds thin more than expected our severe risk may actually go up, we'll be monitoring it closely. Outside of storms it'll be warm, breezy and noticeably muggy with highs in the low to mid 80s. Showers and storms will continue overnight but the strong/severe storm threat will be over by 9pm.

Showers will linger into early Saturday morning, especially the more south and east you are. Expect at least partial clearing over the north country by Saturday afternoon. Meanwhile, highs will be comfortable in the middle & upper 70s. I can't rule out a stray shower along the international border Saturday evening but it won't be plan canceling stuff. Sunday will start off dry but another round of spotty showers is likely Sunday afternoon. The day will not be a washout, rain will be lighter and off & on. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s while humidity continues to stay low. Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday we'll stay slightly unsettled with a daily shot at showers. The thunder threat across the board after Friday appears low each day. Highs early next week will be in the low to mid 70s with overnight lows in the 50s.

The weekend is nearly here!
