Severe weather on the table

It has been a rather active weather pattern to start December. Through the 8th, the state has averaged 1.39 inches. Attention now turns to another round of showers and storms tomorrow and Saturday. Altogether, another half to 1.5 inches will be on the table. Coverage will start tomorrow scattered in nature. Highs will jump into the 60s across much of the area behind breezy southerly winds. Shower/storm coverage and intensity then increases tomorrow night and into Saturday morning. A line of storms is expected with damaging winds as the main threat, but tornadoes also very much possible. Heavy rain also presents a flooding threat, especially for low lying areas. Now is the time to get animals out of those spots. Bottom line, this will present an overnight threat, so please have a way to get warning (highly suggest a NOAA Weather Radio).

After a brief cool down for the latter half of the weekend, temperatures go on the uphill climb next week. Outlooks hint the warm air will hang around the area through the third full week of December. Any additional rain chances look to hold off until late workweek.
