Advice from James Spann

“While much of the weekend will be dry, keep in mind a few storms could be strong. When thunder roars, go indoors!"

Looking Ahead to Monday

“Showers and storms will be more numerous Monday night as a cold front pushes into the state,” said Spann.

Please keep in mind that as weather conditions develop this could change some of the future forecasting. The Townsquare Media Weather crew will bring you updates if needed.
