FIRST ALERT: More rain develops late tonight through Friday morning

The Marginal Risk of severe weather has been dropped. However, a strong storm capable of strong wind gusts or small hail can’t be ruled out before midnight, mainly across NW LA. More showers and a few storms will develop late tonight through Friday morning. The best chance of rain late tonight through Friday morning will likely be along and north of I-30. Temperatures will not tumble tonight. Overnight lows will be in the mid to upper 40s. A few places could hang on to 50 degrees.

Keep a heavy jacket and umbrella handy on Friday. Scattered showers will continue throughout the day. Heavy rain and strong to severe storms are not expected on Friday. For most, Friday is going to be a wet, cloudy, chilly and breezy day. Strong northwest winds will likely develop from west to east across the area on Friday. Winds gusts Friday afternoon could approach 35 mph across portions of E TX and SE OK. This is where the wind will likely be the strongest on Friday. Make sure to anchor down your holiday decorations and inflatables.

The weather will greatly improve by the weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday will feature a fair amount of sunshine and afternoon highs on either side of 60 degrees. We’ll wake up to a mostly cloudy sky on Saturday. However, expect increasing sunshine throughout the day. Overnight lows will be near 40 degrees.

The start of the next week will be mild and mostly cloudy. Highs on Monday and Tuesday will be in the low 60s. Overnight lows will be in the low 40s. We should stay dry this weekend through early next week. However, more rain will be possible late Wednesday into next Thursday.

Have a great night!
