Easter Sunday ended up with more sunshine than forecast, which isn't such a bad thing.

  • Greg Porter

Overall it’s not a bad Sunday to be out and about, despite the chance of a light shower or two this afternoon into evening.

  • Brian Jackson
  • ·

Can’t rule out a light shower on an otherwise comfortably cool late afternoon.

  • Brian Jackson

The storm left behind downed trees, a smashed vehicle and a townhouse that had to be condemned.

Easter Sunday won't be a washout, but some raindrops are likely at some point during the day.

  • Greg Porter
  • ·

We should avoid any truly disruptive weather this holiday weekend.

The heavy rain, strong wind, and tornado risk has passed.

The upgrade puts Michael squarely in the list of powerful storms and one of only four Category 5s to hit the U.S. on record.

The stormiest conditions seem likely to focus on the afternoon through the evening.

  • A. Camden Walker

The worst weather should hold off until later Friday.

Greenland’s summer melt season has already begun — more than a month ahead of schedule.

  • Matthew Cappucci
  • ·

One to two inches of rain could fall, with locally heavier amounts. Damaging wind gusts cannot be ruled out in thunderstorms.

The midweek count spiked to 1,695.85 grains of pollen per cubic meter of air, which is "very high."

The weekend is a mixed bag with some showers and some sun.

  • Matt Rogers

Sunshine starts to break through by game time with temperatures lifting to 80 or so.

There could be an early-morning shower. Then it's game on for warmth.

Texas has seen 29 $100 million or costlier hail storms in the past 25 years.

  • Matthew Cappucci
  • ·

This storm is likely to produce multiple hazards, but heavy rain may be most significant locally.

It emitted a massive green flash. "I was just gobsmacked when I saw it," said an eyewitness.

  • Matthew Cappucci

We're headed near and past 80 degrees tomorrow. And then our weather looks rather volatile Friday afternoon and night.
