Weather Headlines

We’ll kick off Thursday with sunshine but wrap-around clouds will move across parts of Region 8 by afternoon.

This will create a spread in today’s temperatures from 60 to the north and near 70 south.

It’ll also feel just as windy as yesterday with gusts approaching 35mph.

Our next chance of rain arrives with a cold front Friday night into Saturday morning. In fact, a couple storms may produce severe wind and hail once again.

We’ll salvage most of the weekend as sunshine warms us into the low 70s.
