Freeze Warning Issued for Area Early Monday Morning


The main line of storms leftover from last night, will begin to push into our westernmost areas around 9-10 AM Sunday. Storms will hit the coast first and then move inland. A few lingering showers possible through the afternoon. Strong winds aloft translating to the surface in downdrafts will bring the potential of damaging winds - hard to say if this will be sporadic or fairly widespread. Remember, our average high temperature for this time of the year is 66°.

The Live 5 First Alert Weather team declared Sunday a First Alert Weather Day because of the possibility of severe weather.

The winds will start ramping up Sunday morning, and it will be warm and very humid. Clouds return Thursday, and right now we can't rule out a few scattered showers into early Friday. Any storms we see, do have the potential to be strong to severe.

Heavy rainfall, frequent lightning, and gusty winds have bee the primary impacts along the leading edge.

Sunday: A cloudier day with some showery rain, though some bright or sunny intervals may break through later in the afternoon especially in the west.
