Tracking severe weather potential

Heat and humidity makes a return this weekend, along with storm chances.

An approaching cold front will bring an increase in cloud cover today. An isolated shower or two will be possible this morning, but most folks will stay dry. If you’re planning on heading out to the Allen County Fair today, this morning may be your best bet. By this afternoon, building heat and humidity will help to make conditions much more unstable and favorable for storm development. There will be many dry periods throughout the day, but several rounds of rain and storms will be possible this afternoon and evening. Our area has a slight risk for some of these storms becoming strong to severe, with the biggest threats being damaging winds, large hail, and isolated tornadoes. Highs today will climb into the mid-80s.

Our stormy risk continues overnight and into Sunday morning. With instability in place, the potential will exist for some of these storms to become strong to severe during the morning. The cold front will finally swing through around lunchtime or shortly thereafter on Sunday, leaving a few scattered showers and storms with us during the afternoon. Temperatures will again top off in the low to mid-80s.

Behind the cold front, look for comfortable and cooler conditions to start off the work week. We’ll see the chance for a leftover shower or two on Monday with temps in the mid-70s. Highs remain in the 70s to near 80° for the rest of the week.
