Dry for Black Friday, rain and storms return late Saturday

Happy Friday! Temperatures are sitting in the mid-to-upper-40s to begin our Black Friday under mostly clear skies. We'll see a mix of clouds and sunshine for our day today with highs climbing up to around the 70 degree mark. It will be dry today, so you can leave the rain gear at home as you head out and about to shop. Clouds will increase heading into the overnight hours, with Saturday morning lows only dropping into the mid-50s.

A warm and muggy day is expected on our Saturday, and that will set the stage for the possibility of a severe storm(s) Saturday night as a cold front moves on through. As is typical for this time of year, instability will remain low but there will be plenty of wind shear. The frontal system will also be weakening as it moves through our area, similar to the disturbance that moved through this past Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. With that situation, the severe storms remained to our west and that can easily happen again with Saturday night's frontal passage. However, since the timing of storms Saturday night (roughly between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m.) will be earlier than compared to Tuesday night's storms (so a bit more instability), this system will still be something to keep a close eye on. Damaging winds will be the main threat, but an isolated brief and weak tornado can't entirely be ruled out. There will be a slightly better chance of seeing a severe storm along and west of Highway-15. Keep up to date with the latest forecast on this because things can still change.

Sunday will feature partly cloudy skies with a midnight high around 70 degrees. Temperatures will drop into the 50s by sunrise on Sunday and then warm back into the 60s in the afternoon. Monday morning temperatures will be in the upper-30s, with afternoon highs only reaching the low-50s. We'll see plenty of sunshine Monday through Wednesday, but temperatures will be a bit on the cooler-side. We'll drop just below freezing Tuesday morning, with highs that day only in the mid-50s. Highs will return to the 60s on Wednesday and Thursday. Clouds will increase heading into Thursday, but we still look to remain dry that day.
