  • Isolated severe storms possible
  • Calming down overnight
  • Looking mainly dry and warm for Memorial Day Weekend

The first wave of severe weather was this morning that left behind extensive damage in Bedford county in the Norwood neighborhood. You can clearly see the tornado signature in the velocity (video below) as it passed right over the Norwood area around 7:25AM Friday morning.

We had some more severe and tornado warned storms enter our area this evening. The Weather Alert Day is officially cancelled as our cold front exits the region. Scattered rain will hold for the next couple of hours before drier conditions build in overnight. Low temperatures will be mild in the upper 50s and low 60s.

The start of Saturday may bring some mist/drizzle, but most will be dry and remain dry all day. Increasing sunshine throughout tomorrow with highs working up to the upper 70s and low 80s.


Right now, looks like both Sunday and Monday are dry with warming temperatures. Highs on Monday will make their way into the upper 80s and low 90s. Doing anything outdoors? Don’t forget to stay hydrated and wear the SPF.

We'll see more sunshine for the holiday weekend.

Throughout much of next week we hold onto the toasty temperatures thanks to an upper level ridge. This will also keep us dry with mostly sunny skies.

Temperatures will work their way back into the 90s again.
