Could be a Stormy Sunday Morning

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Most of us should remain dry through the night and into Saturday morning.  However, the clouds will persist through the night and lows will only dip into the upper 60°s for most of the Capital City region. Be ready for some patchy fog for Saturday's sunrise too.  Saturday looks to be a drier day compared to Friday: set rain chances at 30%.  Like Friday, Saturday rain totals are expected to remain relatively modest: 0.1" to 0.2" at most through the day for most WAFB communities.  In addition, with more sunshine expected on Saturday compared to Friday, afternoon highs are expected to return to the 80°s.  The NWS Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has the entire WAFB viewing area under a "Marginal Risk" of severe weather from Saturday morning into Saturday night and extending into Sunday.  The severe weather threat is tied a cold front expected to arrive in the WAFB viewing area during the pre-dawn hours of Sunday morning.  By Sunday morning, showers and thunderstorms are expected to be fairly widespread with a few of those storms on the stronger side. The cold front will continue to push to the southeast on Sunday but is expected to slow and stall along or near the southeast Louisiana coast late Sunday, keeping our weather unsettled into the early part of the upcoming work week.  The front will remain stalled somewhere between the Louisiana coastline in the northern Gulf into Tuesday: keep the umbrella handy for early next week.  However, with the front to our south, highs for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday are expected to be in the 70°s.  -- Jay Grymes / WAFB First Alert Storm Team
