Strong gusty winds over the day and overnight may lead to a few severe thunderstorms overnight into early Sunday morning. The possibility of severe weather is low, with only a marginal risk of severe weather. A Marginal risk means that a few storms will briefly turn severe. High winds will be the main threat.
High Wind Watches and Wind Advisories are in effect for Saturday night into Sunday morning with strong gusty winds expected up to 45-60 mph. Be sure to tie down anything loose in the yard like trash cans, any toys the kids may leave out, and so on. The strongest winds will occur after midnight till sunrise Sunday.
Clouds will begin to clear out as we head into Sunday afternoon. The cold front will keep temperatures as highs in the 40’s and 50’s for the next week, but another cold front will come mid to late week that will cool us down during the latter part of the week and into the weekend with high temperatures closer to the average for this time of year.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy skies with highs in the low to mid 60’s. Winds will be out of the south at 10-20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph.
