High wind watch to go into effect Sunday night

The rain will continue to push eastward throughout the morning hours, with light to moderate rainfall possible here locally through lunchtime. Warmer weather returns for much of next week.

Sunday: Rain and storms for the afternoon and evening 2PM-10PM (100%). Skies will remain clear and allow for prime radiational cooling to drop temperatures down to near freezing. Highs will rebound into the upper 50s on Monday, some middle/upper 70s on Tuesday and then 65-70┬░ for the rest of the week. As high pressure to our south moves offshore Tuesday, temperatures will warm with above normal temperatures expected Wednesday and Thursday.

This is the time of year when storms start becoming scarce, Durfee said, and daytime highs start rising as spring heads toward summer. It looks like another strong springtime cold front will be headed our way by next Friday afternoon/evening.

Spring-time storm systems are notoriously hard to predict and some changes to the forecast are likely including a possible increase or decrease in the risk of severe storms. The better chance for rain will come at some point Sunday.

A few of the storms we are expecting with tonights front could be strong to severe.

"It's become sort of a tradition this month to have severe weather Friday and a cool weekend", Huckaby said. We will stay dry the entire day with only a 20% chance of showers late in the day.

Pleasant weather and cool overnight lows are expected for the remainder of the weekend.
