A SEVERE THUNDER STORM WATCH is in effect until 2AM for Fayette, Union, Franklin, Decatur and Butler Counties.
Today was a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine and a high temperature of 78°. That is 2° warmer than the normal high for the day. This morning’s low was 48° which is 8° cooler than the normal giving us an average temperature of 63°, 3 degrees cooler than normal.
Rain and thunder will slide southeast overnight and bring the SLIGHT RISK of severe storms to the FOX19 NOW viewing area. The main risk is from until 2AM. By dawn only a few showers will be in the area but they will be light and non-severe. The threat of severe storms does not stop there though. The Storm Prediction Center says there is a SLIGHT TO ENHANCED RISK of severe thunderstorms Saturday afternoon and evening and a SLIGHT RISK Sunday early in the day.
I am watching this and will have more through the night until the threat ends on FOX19 NOW.
Memorial Day will be dry and pleasant but warm.
