There were hundreds of reports across the southeast and Midwest of wind damage, tornadoes, and hail. Thankfully all of the moisture moves east and a quieter pattern is on the way.
Now to the cooler and drier air. The water vapor image shows improving weather to our west. The black and orange is dry air! That moves in later on this afternoon. Don’t be surprised to see a brief shower as the main cold front presses through later today. No severe weather is in the forecast.
Here is your 5-day temperature trend. Expect a cooler weekend! Highs Saturday only reach the middle 60s under a mostly sunny sky. We’ll be in the lower to middle 70s Sunday. We’ll start Saturday and Sunday morning in the 40s! Have the jacket for your early morning jog Saturday and church on Sunday! Looks like a perfect weekend for college football. It could be a little breezy at area stadiums, but not bad! Enjoy!
