As we head into the overnight hours, clouds will be on the increase ahead of the next disturbance that will bring us some isolated thunderstorms. The good news is the cloud coverage in the overnight hours will limit how much we cool down, so all of us will see lower 40s tonight. As we head into early Sunday morning hours, thunderstorm activity will be increases across areas south of I-20. Some of these storms could be severe, with a limited risk of some hail, tornadoes will not be a threat with this event. With all the rain the counties south of I-20 saw Thursday night, flooding could be a possible hazard.

To begin the work week, temperatures will stay normal into Tuesday. As Tuesday approaches a cold front will advance across the Twin States bring with it rain as well as colder weather. Tmperatures will take a nose dive, as we will only be sitting with temperatures in the 40s and upper 20s at night. For this time of the year it is well below average, but the good news is it will not stick around for long.

As we head towards the weekend, temperatures will become warmer as we get some warm air advection out of the South. A nice gradual warmup is expected with temperatures in the 50s Thursday to the 60s by Saturday. Another shot of rain is possible Friday, but not all of the models agree with it so rain chances are limited to around 20 percent.
