Tracking rain, storms and much cooler air….Stay alert tonight through early Sunday morning! We’re tracking rain and the potential for a couple of isolated thunderstorms overnight.  An area of low pressure to our south will move our way tonight, spreading rain and possible thunderstorms in our direction. Some of the rain could be heavy at times and some of the storms could also bring damaging wind gusts. We cannot rule out an isolated tornado either, but we’re not expecting an outbreak of severe weather overnight.  We’ll keep an eye on it closely in the Live VIPIR Forecast Center. But now is a good time to download the NewsChannel 3 App since this active weather will be moving in while most of us are sleeping.  Rain will likely continue into early Sunday morning before we see our skies gradually clear as a cold front moves in. Ahead of the front, high temperatures on Sunday will warm into the mid and upper 60s. By Monday, highs will cool into the 40s under mostly sunny skies. By Wednesday, though, highs will drop into the upper 30s as another push of colder air moves in.

Saturday Night: Mostly Cloudy. Rain Likely (80%). Thunderstorms are possible. Some storms could be strong to severe. Low temperatures in the middle 50s. Winds: SE 10-20 mph.

Sunday: AM Showers (50%). Then, gradual clearing. High temperatures in the mid and upper 60s. Winds: W/SW 10-20 mph.

Monday: Mostly Sunny and Chilly. High temperatures in the mid 40s. Winds: NW 5-15 mph.
