WHAT TO EXPECT
Clouds increase tonight with a low of 47 degrees around midnight. We’ll warm up to around 50 by the morning with cloudy skies and a few showers.
Scattered rain arrives Friday morning with hit or miss rain throughout the data at a 40% coverage. We’ll have a high of 67 degrees with southwesterly wind 10 to 15 mph and gusting up to 20 mph.
Friday night gusts increase to around 40 mph with the main line of storms. Our WVLT First Alert Weather Day begins overnight Friday and through early Saturday morning, since these storms can be strong and potentially cause some wind damage. The alert continues Saturday, despite the mostly sunny transition, because gusts continue up to 50 mph Saturday afternoon and can still cause some damage.
In your First Alert 8-Day Planner, we’ll return to 30s Sunday morning and then have sunshine and mid-60s again in the afternoon. Next week warms right back to the 70s for the most part, with spotty scattered rain and storms.
