    Tonight will be very stormy with plenty of showers around. There will be heavy rain at times with some strong storms. Winds are likely to gust up to 20 mph. Most of the stronger and severe weather will stay to our north. It does not mean we will not see some outbreak. The severe risk for us is not zero. Rain chances for tonight are up to 80%. This rain is caused from a cold front that will stall over us, or slow down by Sunday. This will allow the rain to last most of our Sunday.
