Forecasters say there’s a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday, with more threatening weather expected to follow. Thunderstorms on Sunday could be severe, with wind gusts around 40 miles per hour and hail up to an inch in diameter. The storms also have the potential of intense rainfall, which could lead to flooding in low-lying areas.
The storms will linger overnight and into Monday morning before settling down a bit with scattered showers throughout the night. Conditions will be cloudy for a few days but mainly dry — until we hit the end of the week, when more storms are predicted.
