A Slight Risk of severe thunderstorms is in the forecast for Sunday for a large portion of the forecast area. The main threats will be damaging winds, large hail, tornadoes, and locally heavy rainfall. Please stay tuned for future updates as this situation develops this weekend.
A developing storm system over the Plains has created strong winds across the region this afternoon. These winds are expected to be stronger on Saturday as the system approaches the region. South winds of 15 to 30 mph with frequent gusts up 40 mph are expected on Saturday. This will lead to difficult driving conditions for high profile vehicles especially on east-west roadways and on bridges and overpasses. Loose lawn objects along with trash cans will be blown around. Unsecured tents will easily be tossed around.
Increased onshore winds of 20 to 25 knots will persist over all of the gulf coastal waters tonight through Sunday. Due to the strong winds, seas will increase to 5 to 7 feet over the open gulf waters... and 3 to 5 feet over the tidal lakes and sounds this afternoon. Seas will increase further on Saturday and into Sunday. These winds will also cause tide level to increase for all 3 tide cycles through Sunday. Tides will be 1 to 2 feet above normal.
Warm and humid conditions will continue into tomorrow with highs expected to be a few degrees warmer. Mostly cloudy skies are expected along with windy conditions. Thunderstorms will return Sunday with a few severe storms expected.
Climate data for April 28th. Normal highs for late April are near 80, normal lows middle 50s to lower 60s.
