Pleasant Saturday, strong to severe storms possible Sunday

Weather Alert Day Friday Severe storms expected

Rain, Possible Severe Storms this Weekend

Tuesday is looking cool and dry with highs in the low and mid 60s. We rebound to the lower 70's by mid-week. Tonight's low is cold at 39 degrees. Temperatures will kick off in the 50s this morning. Warmer for Monday as an upper level ridge moves east our area to give us a mild southwesterly flow.

Tuesday's forecast calls for a high of 84 with a low of 61.

A tranquil weather pattern will remain in place through the first half of the work/school week. Sunday Night will be clear, breezy and even colder.

The front is forecast to bring numerous showers and thunderstorms, forecasters said in an alert Friday. The best chance of this happening would be from western North Carolina toward Southside Virginia, but it is far from certain these "discrete" storms will develop at all.

The clash in air masses and the vigorous nature of this storm system will all contribute to the chances for severe weather today. We'll keep an eye on things. Review your severe weather plan and know what you should do if a severe storm or tornado is near you.

May has indicated she wants Britain to join in any USA -led strikes in response to the suspected attack near Damascus. Macron said Thursday that France would not tolerate "regimes that think everything is permitted".

Once the severe storm threat is over we'll still have to contend with a flooding threat.

Sunrise: 7:36 a.m. In this case, that begins with just being aware that severe storms are possible in our region roughly in the 3 p.m.to midnight time period, though not everywhere constantly. A light freeze is expected in most areas. Wind will stay breezy, with gusts around 35 miles per hour possible. Highs for Sunday will be in the mid 80s with windy conditions.

Because of the morning passage of this system, intensity will be somewhat reduced, but instances of storm-related wind gusts may produce localized damage. Lows around 68. Wind S 10-20 miles per hour.

Cooler and more tranquil weather will arrive for Monday.

Tomorrow: Sunny. Wind: N/NW 15-25; gusty.
