In other words, our far northern communities have a slightly better chance to be on the receiving end of strong-to-severe thunderstorms on Friday night, with damaging winds topping out over 60 miles per hour still our main severe weather threat. I am bumping up the coverage to 50% but keeping the chance for severe storms along the Gulf Coast.

WINTER-LIKE DAY SATURDAY: While it looks like the rain will end very early in the day, Saturday will be mostly cloudy, windy, cold and raw.

Temperatures warmed into the 60s Thursday afternoon with mostly sunny skies. We'll mention a few hit and miss storms attempting to flare up ahead of the complex of storms that will likely drop southward into the region beginning just before sunset in our northernmost counties, moving into our southernmost counties through the wee hours of Saturday morning.

A strong cold front will sweep into the state after 10 p.m. Friday, bringing with it a line of showers and thunderstorms.

Parts of the Midlands are under a Marginal Risk of severe weather Saturday. The Storm Prediction Center indicates that we will see a "slight" risk for severe storms.

Damaging winds will be the biggest threat with any storms that develop.

A chance of rain and snow is in the forecast for Friday night. On Friday, most places will top out in the mid to upper 70s.

This front is also going to be in a blast of chilly air, so much cooler is going to follow the front.

A chance for showers and thunderstorms enters the picture on Saturday.

Temperatures will tumble Saturday night into Sunday morning.
