3 DAY WEEKEND!!!! 

Tonight – Possible Isolated Thunderstorms  10 PM Temp 70

Current radar trends show a pop up storm in western Williamson County. This will track slowly east over the next few hours. Expect a soaking if you get hit by this thing. This is all due to a leftover boundary.

Things will die down with the sunset.

Saturday –  Sunshine – Wake Up 60, High 85

Great day to hit the road and travel to your Memorial Day Weekend getaway, or pop open the grill for a BBQ by the pool, aahhhhhhh. Enjoy it y’all!

Sunday  Isolated Thunderstorms, Partly Sunny  Wake Up 61, High 87

Those pesky afternoon shower/thunderstorms return to the forecast. Plan for rain, but don’t bet on it.

If you care to know, here is the “official” hurricane outlook from NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration):

This is basically impossible to forecast but we do it anyway. Even if there are 13 named storms, 6 hurricanes, and 2 major hurricanes, it does not mean a thing to us unless it hits something. It only takes one storm to make it a bad season. Always be prepared.
