The area is under an Enhanced Risk (3 out of 5) for severe weather.
The mountains will experience some high elevation snow showers on the back side of this system Sunday night into Monday morning, which will be on the cool side with highs in the 50s and 60s. Northerly wind 10-20 miles per hour in the evening. And, with a saturated ground and top-heavy trees that have leafed out, it's not impossible that a couple of trees are uprooted this afternoon.
It's another summer-like day for us, but with a few more clouds. Lows will be in the lower 40s north and upper 40s south! Some of the storms can become severe.
Mostly cloudy, breezy and mild with a 20% chance for a shower.
Sunset: 8:13 p.m.
We'll be tracking a strong cold front approaching eastern Carolina from the west Sunday night. For that region around Winner, Mission, and Murdo, highs will only get into the low to mid 30s. A "backdoor front" - designated by the dashed purple line on this morning's satellite view (left panel of the graphic) - is forcing cooler air and overcast skies southward. Temperatures will be falling through the 60s, and bottom out overnight in the middle and low 50. This is one step higher over yesterday's Slight Risk and mean's our severe weather potential, including the threat for tornadoes, is looking slightly higher.
At 9:15 Saturday morning we had several tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings in the area.
Please have a way to receive severe weather alerts this afternoon. Lows around 68. Wind S 10-20 miles per hour. Rain chances are low this week. "Heavy rain totaling 2-4" possible.
Temperatures on Monday will increase around 10° for most of us with a lot of melting going on.
