(WOWK) — A cold front with strong storms will send area high temperatures from the 80s back into the 60s between Friday and Saturday. See the latest projected progression of storms Friday into Saturday in the slideshow below:
There is a small chance of severe storms with a chance of severe to damaging winds and also a small chance of an isolated tornado.
The risk of tornadoes is low but it is not zero. The 2 percent current chance listed by the Storm Prediction Center means if you are anywhere in the green zone you have a 2 percent chance of a tornado report within 25 miles of your location. That’s a very small chance.
The chance of a potentially damaging wind gust is slightly higher from the storms late Friday into Saturday but is still only listed at a 5 percent chance in the brown zone.
Rainfall estimates all range below one inch which means we should be able to handle that in area streams and creeks without real flooding concerns.
Even when the rain subsides, we still can see wind gusts up around or above 20 mph Saturday mid-day and Saturday afternoon.
Temperatures will slide a little in the late afternoon from the 60s into the 50s. The normal high would run around 70 degrees for Saturday so this is a dramatic shift.
