Storms should continue with some line-segment style storms possible which usually mean strong winds near or within that line.

By late night, the storms are projected to move east of the WOWK area and weaken. That’s when light showers will linger in some areas and mist or drizzle will form as well as much cooler air moves in.

Rainfall amounts should be overall below an inch according to Predictor but if we have repetitive storm cells over particular areas we might see some high water on streets.

After the storms fade, the air will cool substantially with well below normal high temperatures for Saturday along with some drizzle at times.
