Storms through weekend; severe weather threat Sunday

Storms through weekend; severe weather threat Sunday

At this time, the main concern with some of these late day storms will be damaging wind gusts along with heavy downpours. Just stay mindful of the weather as bigger storms will start developing to our west. Highs top out mainly in the 70s as southeasterly winds increase between 10 and 25 miles per hour. If tornadoes develop, the ingredients will be there for strong and long-track tornadoes, which is why the threat of tornadoes is elevated. This puts the bluegrass state in the possible bullseye for severe storms.

The Storm Prediction Center outlook has placed the northwest corner of the local forecast area in an unusual and significant 4/5, "moderate risk" for severe thunderstorms. But, we are also seeing some evidence the storms threat could linger in East Alabama through the early afternoon.

Rounds of rain and a few thunderstorms are expected across the Brazos Valley Saturday. We'll see highs in the upper 60s across the Denver metro-area under a mostly sunny sky.

Volatile, warming weather Thursday could end with strong thunderstorms — and a soggy Cubs game

The majority of late Sunday morning and early Sunday afternoon will be rain free, but we are tracking showers and storms later in the afternoon and especially into the night.

Sunday will be cool and breezy, but completely dry with sunshine. It'll be pretty nice with highs around 70 Monday and near 80 Tuesday. Low 40s are on track for Sunday night.

WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of storms. Lows will be near 40 with highs only in the mid 50s. Much better chances for rain return to the mountains on Thursday with our next frontal system.
