We'll be mainly dry and cloudy to start the day, but a warm front will approach by late morning and bring scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon.

The storms will become more numerous into the evening hours and could produce gusty winds, heavy downpours and a potential isolated tornado.

With the heavy rainfall in the forecast, this has also prompted the weather service to issue a flash flood warning as well.

Here's the official word and warning from the National Weather Service:

Showers and thunderstorms late today and into this evening may produce wind gusts approaching severe limits and locally heavy rainfall. The overall probability for widespread hazardous weather is lower then area's closere to New York City and Northern New Jersey.

 

Here's the forecast as we get set to head into the weekend.

  • Friday: Sunny and windy with a high near 80
  • Friday Night: Clear with winds dying down low around 50
  • Saturday: Sunny with a high near 76
  • Sunday: Partly Sunny with a 40% chance of showers after 2 PM with a high near 78

As you can see, after the storms today, we're looking for better weather heading into our region with slightly lower temperatures and lower levels of humidity, which will make things a little more comfortable.
