Get ready for a wild weather day! We have a threat for severe thunderstorms this morning, a chance for snow this afternoon, winds gusting to over 40 mph, and a 30+ degree temperature drop.
A cold front will move through the area today, bringing us these dramatic weather changes. A line of rain and thunderstorms will move through from west to east this morning (6 AM to 11 AM). Severe thunderstorms are possible with a threat for damaging wind gusts, localized flooding, and isolated tornadoes.
Temperatures will fall from the 50s and 60s this morning to the 30s this afternoon. With the colder air, we could see a switch from rain to snow showers this afternoon. Little to no accumulation is expected. It will be very windy today, turning from SW to NW as the cold front moves through. Expect wind gusts at 40 to 60 mph possible.
The chilly air will stick around for Sunday. Temperatures will start in the 20s Sunday morning with a wind chill in the teens. Highs will only reach the upper 40s, but it will feel more like the upper 30s. We will see lots of sunshine, but it will still be breezy with winds at 10 to 20 mph.
