Rowan weather: Hot, then storms; nice weekend

In today’s hazardous weather outlook, there’s the usual thunderstorms, cloud-to-ground lightning, hail and more.
On Thursday, flash flooding and severe thunderstorms are possible. Blame it on subtropical moisture coming up from the Gulf ahead of a cold front. That may bring periods of heavy rain and thunderstorms with strong upper level winds and large hail. The storms will occur all day Thursday and into Thursday night.
Today, it’ll be another hot one, with a high near 90. Tonight should be calm, with a low around 63.
Wednesday begins the unsettled weather, with a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 1 p.m. Otherwise, skies will be mostly sunny with a high near 88. The chance of rain goes up Wednesday night to 40 percent, with cloudy skies and a low around 63. Rain will be less than a tenth of an inch, except in storms.
Thursday’s dire prediction includes an 80 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms and a high around 76. Winds from the southeast will gust as high as 22 mph, and higher in storms. Thursday night continues with an 80 percent chance of rain and storms, especially in the wee hours of the morning. Thursday’s low will be around 58.
A 30 percent chance of showers lingers Friday, but it will be mostly sunny with a high near 74. Friday night’s low will be a cool 48.
Look for sunny skies on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, with highs ranging from 72 to 75 degrees and lows in the upper 40s and low 50s.
It should be a nice weekend for the many scheduled events in our area, including Mayfest at the Rowan County Fairgrounds, Riot in the Pasture at Morgan Ridge Vineyards and Cleveland’s Spring Festival, as well as Let’s Get Connected Day in Granite Quarry.
