A few strong-to-marginally severe storms will be possible, mostly north and west of this area.

Some of the storms will produce locally strong, possibly damaging, gusty winds, frequent lightning and brief heavy rainfall which could lead to a limited potential of flooding in low-lying areas.

Damaging straight-line winds along with a brief tornado will be possible with some of the stronger thunderstorms.

Highs today should reach 72 degrees with a low of 48 degrees tonight and clouds.

A few strong storms and locally heavy rainfall will be possible during the weekend and into early next week.
