Rowan weather: Storms could be severe

On what seems more like a spring day than a fall day, we can expect a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 1 this afternoon.

For now, patchy dense fog is possible in the area, until around 10 a.m., especially if you are traveling on I-77.

Some of today’s thunderstorms could bring heavy rainfall, gusty winds and cloud-to-ground lightning. Some storms could become severe with hail and damaging winds. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

Otherwise, it will be cloudy, then clear to a mostly sunny day with a high of 80. Calm wind will become south at 5-9 mph. Less than a tenth of an inch of rain is expected, except in thunderstorms, which could produce downpours.

Tonight has a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, with more patchy fog forming overnight. It will be partly cloudy and 60, with southeast wind around 5 mph calming later.

Friday will be mostly sunny and 80, with south winds at 5-8 mph in the afternoon. Friday night will be clear, with a low of 64.

Saturday will be sunny and 80, with south southwest wind at 6 mph in the afternoon. The low will be 57 under clear skies.
