With how much sun we received this afternoon, it turned into a gorgeous day, and it's certainly tough to tell that severe weather is occurring just off to our northwest. Not much more rainfall is likely.

The timeline is pointing toward the 4 p.m.to 10 p.m. time frame on Saturday.

MORE RAIN AND THUNDER LATE SUNDAY: The wet weather will thin out on Sunday, with lingering clouds and cooler temperatures.

To wrap up Severe Weather Awareness week we are talking about convective outlooks issued by the Storm Prediction Center (SPC).

Please see the attached graphic to see what risk you are under for tomorrow.

Flash flooding is defined as is defined as the rapid rise in water, typically within a three to six-hour window, that can produce property-and life-threatening hazards in normally dry areas. Isolated pockets of large hail will be limited to the northeast sections (ENHANCED RISK AREA) with these storms. Also, be sure to download our FREE First Alert Weather App.

We will continue to monitor the forecast on this developing storm in the days ahead and keep you updated! In general a 3 or above represents a significant chance for severe weather, which has the potential to be unsafe to life and property. By sunrise tomorrow, the front will have stalled right over us, setting up a soggy Sunday with showers continuing.
