Watch Blaise Saturday evenings at 6 &10, and Sunday evenings at 5 & 10!
Parts of the southeast saw some heavy rain, frequent lightning and gusty winds as a line of storms moved slowly northeast following a cold front. It's attached to a occluded low pressure system that is slowly moving northeast. Some places have picked up an inch or two of rain as the storms moved slowly out but what we're focusing on is, because we are switching out airmasses, we're going to see a couple of windy days across the KDLT viewing area.
The low pressure system is moving slowly off to the northeast but not before it brought some of us some heavy rain, some strong thunderstorms and, some of us, nothing but sunshine. Where we saw the sunshine, temperatures were able to climb higher than for those of us stuck underneath the cloud cover as well as the rain cooled air. Winds have been mainly out of the south but they'll be steadily turning out of the southwest then northwest as we go into and throughout the day on Sunday.
There is a wind advisory for some of our northwestern counties because, as this low moves out, we are going to switch from a tropical and warm airmass to a drier and cooler one; winds are going to be steadily turning out of the northwest as we go into Sunday. That's going to start overnight as the low continues to exit the forecast area, we'll see partly cloudy skies to mostly clear skies the farther north and central you live. Going into Sunday, winds will be out of the northwest and some of us could see wind gusts as high as almost 50 miles per hour as cooler air funnels in. That drier air, however, will mean that skies are going to open up going into the rest of the day on Sunday, Sunday night into Monday as well.
Temperatures tonight will be warmer the farther east you live. We'll see partly cloudy skies to mostly clear skies with breezy conditions across much of the west.
Sunday calls for partly cloudy skies as clouds on the backside of the low continue to impact the forecasting area. Winds are going to be especially breezy across the the north and the west, with gusts reaching up to nearly 50 miles per hour. Temperatures are going to be cooler the farther north and west you live as well, warmer across the southeast as the cold front will impact that area starting Sunday night.
Clear skies for Monday all the way through next Friday, when we could see the chance a slight chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Otherwise, temperatures are going to seasonal hanging out in the 70s with a mid week warm up.
