Weather Forecast: Dry today, then showers return this weekend

Weather Forecast: Dry today, then showers return this weekend

The reason there is a higher severe risk (Enhanced and Moderate) in East Texas into the Arklatex is for a higher tornado threat and higher storm coverage than the DFW/North Texas area. This will be the warmest part of the day, colder air will continue to funnel in from the north late morning and into the afternoon hours. Still blustery and cold. The winds will stay very strong today across the plains but through tonight we'll be generally dry south of Lincoln and Cheyenne counties.

A wicked late winter storm will be moving through Northcentral Wisconsin over the next three days. At times it will be heavy. Please have multiple ways to receive severe weather information. Sunday will be a much cooler day with highs only in the 60s. The amount of rainfall will partially depend on how fast the thunderstorms move early Saturday as well as how long rain lingers through the day. Some light rain and clouds will linger into early Saturday, but those will clear out by the afternoon and leave us with some attractive, if cool, conditions. We just can't shake the 30s this spring! Before noon, some light scattered rain is expected to track into East Texas. "We've never had to use (the plan) before, and more often than not, if you've got a stormy night, you're not going to have a capacity crowd". This snow and windy conditions will continue through Sunday.

One of the largest events of the year, Southwood High School's Concert in the Courtyard, has been rescheduled for Saturday at 6 p.m.at the school. Totals of a foot or more of snow through the weekend are not out of the questions, even in Wausau.


Ahead of the front, temperatures will warm into the low 80s Sunday.

The time frame on the arrival of the line of storms is gradually becoming more clear.
