Rowan weather: Chance of storms later

Hot weather often creates steamy afternoons that bring the risk of thunderstorms. Today we are facing another hazardous weather outlook, mainly for this afternoon and evening, when storms will begin to develop.
Storms will start in the mountains and then move east. The biggest threats are frequent cloud-to-ground lightning and brief, heavy downpours.
The chance for precipitation is only 30 percent, but with partly sunny skies and a high near 87, plus winds from the southwest up to 24 mph, we may build some instability in the atmosphere. Tonight’s low will be around 62. Not much rain is expected, except in the thunderstorms.
Saturday, the chance of storms goes up to 40 percent, with the storms expected mainly after noon. High will be near 80, with winds from the southwest again, as high as 21 mph. Little rain accumulation is expected, except in heavier storms.
Saturday night will be mostly cloudy with a 30 percent chance of showers and storms and a low around 55. Skies will clear overnight.
Sunday, Mother’s Day, should be a nice one — warm, with a high near 84, and less wind. Sunday night comes with a 20 percent chance of showers and storms, late in the evening. The low will be near 59.
Monday, the sun returns, and we can expect a high near 85. Monday night’s low will be around 63.
But showers and storms return Tuesday with a high of 84, and Tuesday night, with a 30 percent chance of rain and a low around 62.
The chance of rain goes up to 40 percent Wednesday, with a high near 80 and a low around 56, still with a 40 percent chance of showers.
Thursday brings a 30 percent chance of showers and somewhat cooler temperatures, with a high near 75.
