TONIGHT AND SUNDAY

The coverage and intensity of showers and thunderstorms will gradually increase ahead of a cold front through Sunday. Isolated flash flooding and severe thunderstorms may become more common later Saturday into Sunday as ample moisture streams into the region. Damaging winds are the main threat with any severe thunderstorms, although large hail or an isolated tornado will also be possible. River flooding will also become a concern for prone rivers, especially by Sunday, in response to extended periods of moderate to heavy rain.
