Showers, thunderstorms will setup for great weekend in FLX

Rain chances are expected to increase over the next couple days, but don’t expect either of them to be a washout.

Thursday will be pleasant with a mix of sun and clouds, as well as a limited chance of a passing shower. According to FLX Weather Meteorologist Drew Montreuil one or two of the showers may have some thunder this afternoon, but storms should not be widespread or severe.

Montreuil says that there will be a much better chance for rain and thunder on Friday, and again Saturday morning. He says there will also be a low chance for a severe thunderstorm, which could pop up and bring some gusty winds or hail.

Neither should be expected in every storm, though.

Temperatures will warm and get more humid over the next two days. After that Montreuil says the weekend will turn pleasant, and sunny skies will dominate the second half of Saturday, as well as Sunday.
