All modes of severe weather will be possible on Saturday: tornadoes, damaging winds and large hail. The tornado threat will likely be threat greatest with any storms that develop ahead of the main line of storms.

We are tracking a cold front that will bring us another round of showers and storms Sunday night to Monday morning.

There is a "MARGINAL RISK" of severe storms for the remainder of the area and the remainder of IL.

There is a chance of an isolated storm Saturday afternoon, but mainly along and south of the Palmer Divide.

The National Weather Service says thunderstorms are expected Saturday from Texas to Alabama. North Texans can expect overnight lows in the mid 40s and highs on Sunday only in the upper 60s. By the afternoon, we'll see some minor improvements before another line of showers moves in.

MONDAY: Rain/TStorms possible. High: 60s. Heavy downpours are likely and some quarter size hail is possible. Much better chances for rain return to the mountains on Thursday with our next frontal system.

Sunday will be cool and breezy, but completely dry with sunshine. We will begin to warm things up again and by mid week more 70s are possible.

Tuesday: Sunny, with a high near 82.

Sunday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 44.

A Severe Thunderstorm Warning has also been announced for Chattooga, Dade, and Walker counties until 8:30 a.m. and Floyd County until 8:45 a.m., with 60 miles per hour winds expected. The highest threats will be for localized flooding and damaging wind gusts.
