We've got warm and windy conditions to kick off the weekend. Showers are possible ahead of the approaching cold front but the chance for thunderstorms peaks Saturday night, likely after 9PM, and into early Sunday morning.
Strong to severe storms are possible but due to limited instability, strong wind gusts are the primary concern. Isolated tornadoes cannot be completely ruled out though, so check for updates periodically through the evening.
Sunday will be cooler with highs in the mid 60s. Rain will linger behind the cold front so keep an umbrella nearby! Showers will be hit or miss across the Pine Belt...and this will set the tone for the first half of the work week as well.
With temperatures just below freezing on Tuesday morning, freezing rain is possible (mainly for our northern counties) early Tuesday. More details to follow. Afternoon highs will gradually increase but won't make it out of the 40s for the first few days of the work week.
