Threat for rain, stronger storms continues Saturday


While there are still some uncertainties in the forecast, we have a threat for severe weather that is NOT ZERO.

Spring-like warmth will continue to move into the Carolinas Saturday and Sunday with daytime temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

The weather service said Sunday should be partly sunny with a high around 40. That means snow showers are likely most of the day Saturday, especially in Eastern Nebraska.

A warm front will move northward and stall out across the KWWL viewing area, and that will dictate temperatures and the potential for severe weather. South wind 10 to 15 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 25 miles per hour.

Friday: Mainly cloudy, windy & hot - late evening front with shower/storms... Highs will reach the mid to upper 50s Saturday with a slight chance of light rain showers with gusty westerly winds. Sunday looks shockingly cooler with highs in the 30s and 40s and areas of sleet (best chance in the Northwest hills) or cold rain. All modes of severe weather will be possible- including large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes. However, with the recent rain and snow yesterday, along with the clearing skies overnight, valley fog is likely to form Friday morning.

Friday will begin with clouds quickly increasing and most of the day should be cloudy with little sunshine. Low: 58. High: 79.

Your temperature and wind flow model for a mostly sunny spring Thursday afternoon.

Tonight: Mostly clear, with a low at 65. Lows on Sunday will drop down to 16 degrees in northern Taiwan, 18 degrees in central Taiwan and 21 degrees in southern Taiwan. The newest update for your First Alert weather app will allow you to customize individual alerts, including severe thunderstorm, tornado, and flooding. This system is also going to drag a cold front through the area, and much cooler air is going to follow the front.
