Temperatures warmed quickly this morning despite cloud cover. Rain that has been passing through at times since the midday has kept the air a bit cooled. It’s a warm regime we’re in, so even rain-cooled air is pretty mild. That’s our story into tomorrow.
Through tonight: We’ll see additional rounds of showers and perhaps some storms through the evening and into tonight. There’s an outside shot a storm could turn strong or even briefly severe. If so, isolated wind damage is the main threat. The evening and beyond aspect would suggest we don’t see severe weather as lows head toward the mid-50s in the coolest spots to the low 60s in the warm ones.

Tomorrow (Saturday): Some showers may linger into the morning and, if so, will end by about 10 a.m. We should also see at least a little midday sun, but perhaps not much. Highs head toward the mid-70s to about 80.
Sunday: It’s looking rather similar for Sunday, but maybe the cloud cover is more total. Hard to say for sure from this range. As a storm system lobbing severe weather at the South rolls this way, odds of late-day storms grow. Anything before sunset would be isolated, but it could be intense if anything develops. A better chance of rain and some rumbles moves in after dark. Highs are in the mid-70s or a bit warmer.
Pollen update: Tree pollen is HIGH at 246.01 grains per cubic meter. Grass pollen is moderate, and mold spores are low.
