FRIDAY: Scattered showers moved through overnight and into this morning, but the stronger storm chances will ramp up later today. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the entire Tri-State under a "1" and a "2" on the Threat Index for Friday afternoon and early evening. The leading edge of the cold front isn't expected to reach the Tri-State until 3PM - 5PM Friday afternoon. As the cold front interacts with our warm and muggy air, it will produce a defined line of showers and thunderstorms, some could be strong to severe. The line of storms is capable of producing damaging winds and heavy rainfall. The possibility of hail and tornadoes are low, but not zero.

FRIDAY NIGHT: As the rainfall exits the Tri-State late tonight and into the early hours of Saturday, temperatures will take a plunge. We'll be waking up to temperatures in the 40s Saturday morning with dry skies.

THIS WEEKEND: After seeing temperatures in the high 70s Friday afternoon, the result of the passing cold front will keep highs in the low to mid 60s Saturday afternoon. Even though it will be sharply cooler this weekend, abundant sunshine will be with us well into next week. Sunday will be the best day this weekend, highs will be a bit warmer nearing the 70s.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
