It will be in the low-40s on Saturday and showers are expected in the afternoon.
Most areas under a Wind Advisory and Red Flag Warning, a High Wind Watch is out for the far eastern zones. There were even some upper teens across the Poconos. Very warm temps and sunshine could make it seem that we’ve jumped straight into summer. Breezy, with a south wind 5 to 10 miles per hour increasing to 15 to 20 miles per hour in the afternoon.
We’re warmer tomorrow but rain and storms roll in late Friday night.
Temperatures will gradually warm for the rest of the week and highs will be near 80 degrees on Thursday and Friday.
Timing for this system is still a bit of a question, but models are nearly unanimous with a late morning/early afternoon arrival of showers and storms that last into the evening. Upper 70s will return on Saturday with a mix of mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. Tonight, mainly clear and cool, lows down in the lower 60s. Heavy rain will accompany the front, along with the potential for some strong storms. The warming won’t stop there.
Highs on Friday will top out at near 80° with mostly sunny skies. Once the front moves through on Monday, temperatures will really drop. It will not be a good day to try to get outside.
The extreme wildfire danger in the KCBD viewing area is being described as a “particularly risky situation” by the Lubbock office of the National Weather Service. These conditions should ease with rain late Friday night and early Saturday.
