Thunderstorms are expected to wallop parts of the tri-state Friday -- and severe weather, including a tornado or two, is possible in the afternoon and evening hours.
Most of the day should stay dry, but strong storms cells could develop later, potentially producing damaging winds or even a tornado, by the afternoon Friday. Lightning is also possible, but the chance of intense hail or flash flooding is low at this point.
Temps should soar by more than 20 degrees, though, with highs expected around 75 degrees Friday. A harsh reality returns Saturday as temps fall back near 50, though cloudy morning skies should give way to afternoon sun.
The mercury cools by a few more degrees Sunday before falling yet again Monday, when more rain -- or even snow -- could hit. At this point, it's too early to predict potential impacts because the track of the system is uncertain. Track the weather using our interactive radar below.
