Severe Weather Threat Continues This Evening

Severe Weather Threat Continues This Evening

A cold front will drop us back to normal for the remainder of the week.

Storms will exit eastern Virginia by around 4 a.m. Rainfall totals will exceed an inch in some locations.

The main threats Sunday will be heavy rain, frequent lightning and potentially damaging wind gusts.

Cooler and more tranquil weather will arrive for Monday.

NiMet's Weather Outlook by its Central Forecast Office in Abuja on Saturday also predicted day and night temperatures in the range of 29 to 41 and 17 to 28 degrees Celsius respectively.

Take the same tools the WDAM First Alert Weather team uses with you anywhere you go. Strong winds and a wintry mix of rain, snow, sleet and freezing rain are possible through the morning, transitioning into all snow later in the day. Expect widespread thundershowers at some point Sunday.

Some of the storms could be strong in the afternoon.

Low temperatures are expected to dip about 5 to 10 degrees from the 70-degree lows the area has been getting, Baxter said. It looks like accumulation today will be in a two to five inch range with strong northeast winds doing what they can to blow it around, making for bad travel conditions. Blizzard conditions also forced the airport in South Dakota's biggest city, Sioux Falls, to remain closed for a second straight day.

As of Saturday afternoon, much of our area was already under a "Slight Risk" for severe weather. Highs this afternoon will climb into the low 80s under a sun-filled sky. High pressure will follow Friday and Saturday.

Expect Merrick and Plainview to be among the communities with a high of 42 while Smithtown and Ronkonkoma will hit 41, East Hampton and Cutchogue, 40, and Manorville, 30. Wind is expected to be lighter as well. Highs will rebound into the upper 50s on Monday, some middle/upper 70s on Tuesday and then 65-70° for the rest of the week.
