Meteorologist Mark’s 5-Day Wx Concerns
Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion
While widespread severe weather is not expected from Wednesday night to Saturday, that doesn’t mean we might not see a strong storm or even an isolated severe storm. The chances are low for that but not zero. It looks like we’ll get a good drink of water for our blooming and sprouting plants, so that’s good. At this time, there are no flooding concerns.
