Pinpoint Weather: Strong storms possible Sunday; summer temps continue through upcoming week

Weather Blog

As the weekend starts to wrap up, we will have somewhat of an encore of Saturday’s weather on Sunday.

Widely-scattered showers and thunderstorms will be likely across the region today with a higher concentration expected in the mountains.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed the bulk of our area in a Marginal Risk (Scale 1 of 5) of severe storms. The main threats with storms on Sunday will be damaging winds and very heavy rainfall. We can’t rule out some small hail with storms. The risk for tornadoes is up slightly north of our region, but it’s another aspect that we’ll monitor closely into the afternoon and evening tonight.

SPC updated the Marginal Risk for the area after 12 p.m.

Heading into next week, we’ll keep a risk for showers and thunderstorms each day. No day is looking like a washout as generally-speaking, we’re looking at between a 20-40% chance of storms each afternoon through next week.

As far as temperatures go, the metro areas are looking at highs in the upper 80s to the lower 90s through next week with other locations looking more in the mid-to-upper 80s.

So, this afternoon, you’ll want to be weather aware. If skies darken, be ready to have a secondary plan in place that’s indoors. Remember, if you can hear thunder, you are close enough to be struck.
