  • This Is Only A Test: Michigan Statewide Tornado Drill is April 11

The overall severe weather threat is low, but strong straight line winds are the main risk. Isolated tornadoes are possible, especially for areas in the Lowcountry.

Even though showers and storms are likely late Friday afternoon into Friday night, most of us are going to stay warm, windy and dry throughout the day.

A strong cold front will sweep into the state after 10 p.m. Friday, bringing with it a line of showers and thunderstorms.

The enhanced risk means multiple severe storms are possible, resulting in hail up to 2 inches in diameter and wind speeds of 75 miles per hour or greater.

South Alabama will have a marginal risk on Saturday as well.

Villanova has found the Wright way to win an NCAA title
After six weeks of highs and one dizzying low, Beilein didn't sound particularly interested in sliding into the offseason at all. While his teammates hit just five of their first 17 shots, Di-Vincenzo rallied the Wildcats to the nine-point halftime lead.

Damaging winds will be the biggest threat with any storms that develop.

Partial clearing is in the cards for Sunday ahead of the next chance of rainfall arriving on Monday.

It is also going to get breezy out of the NNE at 10-20 miles per hour making it feel rather cool to be outside at the Po-Boy or Boudin festivals. On Friday, most places will top out in the mid to upper 70s. However, most will wake up to temperatures in the 40s on Saturday, so have at least a light jacket handy. The weather will be cloudy, breezy and fairly cold for April with temperatures falling from the 50s during the first half into the upper 40s by the final quarter.

A chance for showers and thunderstorms enters the picture on Saturday. Freezing temperatures are possible Sunday morning, with a mostly sunny sky after that. Frost also was in the forecast for Wednesday night of this week.
