Rowan weather: Some storms could be severe

After a warm night, we’re in for a warm day, with a high of 84.

There’s a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, more likely this afternoon, with light south southwest winds. Tonight the chance of showers and storms goes up to 50 percent, with another warm low of 65. Winds will blow from the south at 10 mph, with gusts up to 18 mph.

Some storms today could be severe, with large hail and damaging winds, along with cloud-to-ground lightning the main problems.

Friday could turn out to be the stormiest day, with a 60 percent chance of showers and storms as early as 9 a.m. It will be mostly cloudy, and still quite warm, with a high of 81. Winds will shift to the southwest at 11-15 mph, with gusts around 24 mph. Severe storms are possible during the day and into the afternoon, with damaging winds during the morning hours and the threat of large hail as afternoon storms develop.

Showers and storms are also predicted for Friday night, with a low of 52. The wind will calm, too.

But look for a very nice Saturday, with cooler temperatures, lower humidity and a high near 72 with a light northwest breeze. Saturday night’s low will be 47.

Sunday, too, will be mostly sunny with a high of 73 and a low of 49.

Even Monday looks promising, with partly sunny skies and a high of 75 and a low of 56.

More of the same for Tuesday, a bit warmer, around 77 for the high. A 30 percent chance of showers is possible Tuesday night, with a low again at 56 degrees.

Wednesday will be partly sunny and warmer yet, with a high of 79.
