More of a light show than severe weather this morning

The big story now will be the wind tonight and tomorrow. Be prepared for a blustery day ahead!

The rain chances are not over just yet! There will be a few showers as the main energy of this storm system should be swinging through later this afternoon. Anytime we see this, we could even have a renegade or sporadic chance of a pop up thunderstorm. This would not be the severe kind, which is what most folks want to hear after this morning's light show.

We will keep the clouds around  for most of the day and will see some partial clearing late this Sunday, but even with the late day breaks of sun we may only see a range of readings from 68-72°.

Wind and hail were the primary culprits for damage reported last night across the southeast, and the News 3 viewing area, which got a break from the damaging hail this time. You can say unscathed from the possible worse scenario, with plenty of lightning in the region and reports of small hail.
