Storms expected to develop ahead of tonight's cold front

Afternoon would actually be worse because that would give the atmosphere more time to heat and create more instability.

While confidence in everyone dealing with heavy rain and thunderstorms is high, the severe weather element appears to be a highly changeable forecast.

By Sunday, sunshine will return and temps will be slow to recover. Tornado watches have been issued for the majority of East Texas until 10 pm this evening. In the state's northwest, temperatures are set to fall near freezing early Sunday and below freezing Monday morning. Highs will return to the lower 80s for your Friday.

Warm and settled weather moves along as we finish the work week. Sunday will be a much cooler day with highs only in the 60s. Gusty southwesterly winds will support warm air to continue to flow into the region, therefore only knocking temperatures into the upper 50s for the overnight low.

During that time, you will want to keep a close eye on the sky and have a way to get weather and warning information. Lows will drop in the upper 20s in north-central Kansas to upper 30s to low 40s southeast of the turnpike. Don't put that winter coat away just yet!

Seahawks sign PK Janikowski to one-year deal
He did not play last season after being placed on injured reserve with a back issue that surfaced late in the preseason. The only kicker now on Seattle's roster is Jason Myers, who was signed to a futures contract in January.

This strong cold front will likely be accompanied by a fast moving line of storms. Isolated snow showers should wind down. Tomorrow will see a south west wind that will lift the humidity even more and I suspect many will find tomorrow uncomfortably humid.

Warm and windy as temperatures climb through the mid-70s with gusty south winds of 20-30 miles per hour.

A powerful weekend cold front will bring lots of rain, the risk of a few severe storms, and an abrupt end to our current warming trend! Between 2 and 4 inches of rain is expected, NWS warns, with some areas seeing as much as 6 inches. Hail could be up to the size of baseballs, damaging wind gusts to 70 miles per hour possible.

A high pressure system will grace the Cape Fear Region with mild to warm and mainly dry weather for most of the upcoming weekend.
