A 50/50 weekend ahead with strong storms possible Sunday

Saturday will be a very nice day with mostly sunny skies at first and increasing clouds during the afternoon along with a steady wind. Temperatures will again be in the mild mid 60s. Then things change for the second half of the weekend. A storm system organizing now in Texas will intensify and head our way by Sunday. Right now, the timetable for the roughest weather will be from mid-morning Sunday through the afternoon. This could impact many headin gout to church services. Even if its not raining when you get there, it very well could be storming as you leave, so stay aware. The highest risk for storms with damaging wind that could topple trees and even spawn isolated tornadoes remains far to our south:

That’s indicated by the yellow-shaded areas. The green-shaded areas represent places that will have thunderstorms and steady rain, but wind gusts should stay below severe limits, mainly in the 20-30 mph range. While the heaviest storms exit by late Sunday afternoon, our weather could remain unsettled into the beginning of next week. A strong cold front will head in our direction Monday and Tuesday, bringing a lingering rain chance and finally cooler weather leading into the Thanksgiving holiday.
