FIRST ALERT: Warm, with isolated rain this weekend

Josh Johnson's Friday evening update

Saturday’s rain chances hovers around 40%, dropping to 20% Sunday.

While rain chances aren’t overly high, what does develop could be locally strong with gusty winds and frequent lightning - so we’ll mention a very low risk of damaging wind gusts in those intense, isolated storm cores Saturday.

To the west, a more significant episode of strong to severe thunderstorms will unfold across the lower Mississippi Valley.

Rain and storm coverage really ramps up Sunday night into Monday; details are still fuzzy due to poor model agreement on small-scale details, but there is at least some chance of severe weather with this system. We’ll be watching.
