Latest Forecast Update From Meteorologist Rob Lindenmuth:
We only saw temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s for Thursday with mostly cloudy and overcast skies, unfortunately the skies look to remain mostly cloudy going through Friday afternoon, however temperatures will be more typical for the beginning to middle of May as we soar into the upper 60’s and low 70’s.
A warm front will be pushing through for us tonight, so we will remain mostly cloudy with the chance for a light shower. Otherwise temperatures will be rising and we will still be dealing with gusty winds at times.
Notice the showers along a cold front to the west, showers and thunderstorms will break out Friday evening and into the first half of Saturday as a developing area of low pressure in Arkansas will head in our direction. The rain could become heavy at times which is why there are flood watched posted for the entire viewing area beginning Friday evening and lasting through the weekend.
Most of Friday looks to remain rather quiet with mostly cloudy and maybe a few breaks of sunshine through the afternoon hours.
After sunset Friday is when the rain looks to develop for most, we could see heavy downpours and even a few rumbles of thunder.
The rain may break up for a time Friday late night into early Saturday morning.
Waking up on Saturday there will the heavy downpours around with a few thunderstorms likely as well.
While it will be a wet weekend it does not look to be a washout, scattered showers will be likely both Saturday and Sunday so keep the rain gear handy for any Easter weekend plans you may have.
We remain unsettled through the middle of next week but we do look to keep the milder air as temperatures stay in the mid to upper 60’s for most of the week.
Have a great night!
