With a steady southwest wind and an overcast sky, temperatures will not cool. We'll hold steady in the upper 40s for a mild night.
Friday starts dry with an overcast sky. While the best chances to see scattered showers and isolated storms show up later Friday afternoon, stronger storms come in later. Temperatures warm to near 60 degrees and winds blow in from the south at 10 to 15 mph.
It's Friday night into Saturday morning when a cold front will bring strong to severe storms. The Storm Prediction Center has increased our risk of severe storms into a "slight risk" for most of the viewing area.

This means that damaging winds and minor flooding continue to be our top threats, but isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out. The timing on this event will continue to adjust slightly but the focus currently starts around Saturday at 2 a.m. and continues through 9-10 a.m.
Spotty afternoon rain
Strong to severe storms possible overnight
