WASHINGTON — Showers and storms are in the forecast Friday. Here's the timeline:
Friday Noon. - 6 p.m. - Showers and storms, some strong/severe with heavy rain, damaging winds and even an isolated tornado.
Friday Night: After 7pm showers pull away, windy and colder.
Friday: Mostly cloudy and mild with showers and storms, some strong to severe, especially in the PM. High: 72.
Friday Night: Early shower/storm, clearing windy & colder. Low: 50.
Saturday: Mostly sunny, windy and cooler. High: 68.
A cold front will swing through Friday in the late afternoon giving us a chance for showers and storms during the day. There will be pockets of heavy rain as the storms ramp up Friday afternoon. Some storms will be strong Friday afternoon into the early evening and a few could even be severe with a threat for damaging wind gusts and even an isolated tornado.
We don't believe it will be as serious as our severe weather threat as last week but we will keep a close eye on the storms as they develop.
The storms clear early Friday evening leaving us windy and colder into Saturday.
