Rollacoaster Ride Continues

The weather rollacoaster ride continues. We went way down the hill Wednesday and we'll go back up that hill Thursday and Friday. After a chilly start, look for temperatures to rise into the 70s and lower 80s by Thursday afternoon with some gusty south winds. Humidity will be low and some fire danger may exist.

Warm moist air slowly spreads north Friday as a storm system begins developing to our west by late in the afternoon. This system could spark a thunderstorm or two by the afternoon, with heavier rain and storms becoming more wide spread, especially north of the Red River Friday night into early Saturday. Some of the stronger storms could produce some large hail. This time frame remains a FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY. Storms could linger into Saturday across parts of the area. A higher end severe weather threat could develop just east of us Saturday afternoon.
