Isolated Storms Late Friday, More Numerous Storms this Weekend
Isolated lowland storms will dot the borderland Friday night as heavy rain fall over the area mountains.
An upper level inverted trough/wave will push in from the east Saturday which will bring increased thunderstorm coverage. Western zones will continue to see the best chance for precipitation with locally heavy rain the main threat. The upper level high, currently to our north, will shift westward next week with a strong upper low over the upper Midwest bringing down a significant trough which could be the focus for more widespread heavy rain starting the middle of next week.
Temperatures will continue to be near normal through early next week with a cool down next week with a cold front backing in from the northeast.
I will give you a closer look tonight at 5, 6, 6:30 and 10 P.M.. on NewsChannel 9.
