The stationary front that has been slowing moving our way is in our neck of the woods now. This will lead to widespread showers and storms today. For Saturday, the front is a bit farther away and that will reduce rain chances. However, the front returns for Sunday and Monday, bringing with it widespread showers and storms again. The front clears out for Tuesday, leading to reduced rain chances once again.

The severe weather threat is low but not zero today. Once again, a damaging wind gust is the main threat with any stronger storm, as well as flash flooding and deadly cloud-to-ground lightning.
