Weather Warnings for this Holiday Weekend

From Fire Chief Rickard:

I wanted to follow up with you on our conversation from earlier this week in regards to this weekend’s weather.  Local emergency management as well as the National Weather Service sent out information this morning stating that there is increasing potential for severe storms to impact our area as early as Friday. The best chances of severe weather for us however will be on Saturday.  At this time it appears that the weather moves out by Sunday morning, leaving Sunday through Wednesday to be nice days.  With the influx of visitors to our area for the holiday, I felt it was important to share this information.    

DAY ONE…Today and Tonight.

Weather hazards expected…Limited Fog risk.

DISCUSSION…Areas of dense fog will be possible early today through 9 am, especially near fog prone areas in low terrain and near lakes.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Friday through Wednesday.

Unsettled conditions will develop over the area Friday and Saturday. Warming mid-level temperatures will develop a thermal cap in the atmosphere on Friday which will likely keep most thunderstorm activity from developing until at least Friday night. The overall best chance of strong to severe storms will occur from Saturday afternoon into Saturday night as the cap weakens and very strong instability develops ahead of a cold front which will move through Saturday night. Potentially very large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes will be possible.
