From News9 Meteorologist Stephanie Malone...
Friday will be a great end to the work week before a rainy weekend begins. Today temperatures will get into the upper 60s and lower 70s around the state under partly cloudy skies. If you plan on going out tonight, it won't get that cold with temperatures in the lower 60s around 10 o'clock and lows only bottoming out in the lower 50s.
Saturday highs will reach the mid 70s with a chance for some showers and gusty winds. Sunday chances for thunderstorms go up even more as temperatures reach the lower 70s. So a warm but rainy weekend is in store.
Monday there is a good possiblity for thunderstorms, with some severe storms possible.
