      Today's Forecast

      Today's Forecast Image

      A stormy start to the weekend... A line of storms is moving across the state early this morning; fortunately, the storms are weakening, but isolated damaging wind gusts remain a slim possibility as the line heads east throughout the morning. Also, expect heavy rain as the storms pass.

      A second round of storms arrive late this morning and early afternoon. Once again, the severe threat is minimal, however, a few storms will be capable of producing gusty wind and large hail. Otherwise, cloudy with highs in the middle 70s.

      Storms ending this afternoon and evening, followed by improving weather for Sunday with partial clearing and highs in the 80s.

      The pattern remains active next week. A storm system arrives Monday, bringing another risk for some strong storms.
