Flash flood watch; enhanced chance of severe weather Saturday

The Staten Island Expressway Brooklyn-bound was packed near Bradley Avenue during the Monday morning rush

Some storms could be strong to severe. Some of these storms could be strong to severe, with gusty winds being the main threats although some small hail and even an isolated tornado is not out of the question. Highs only in the low 60s for the afternoon on Monday too with breezy conditions.

The Live 5 First Alert Weather team declared Sunday a First Alert Weather Day because of the possibility of severe weather. Though Sunday will be cloudier and perhaps even showery and therefore not as warm as Friday's mid 70s to lower 80s (82 at Roanoke was first 80-degree day since the record-smashing 84 on February 22) or Saturday's widespread 70s, temperatures will still warm considerably during the day into the mid 60s to lower 70s before this front pushes toward us in the evening. Then, a line of thunderstorms will move in from the Gulf.

A better chance of rain and snow is expected on Thursday night and Friday. Storms are expected to produce 40 to 60 miles per hour wind gusts and isolated gusts between 60 and 70 miles per hour.

Cooler and more tranquil weather will arrive for Monday.

Behind the front, there will be another blast of cooler air moving in on Monday. Isolated thunderstorms are possible Monday afternoon and snow levels will be high above 6,000' with several inches of mountain snow possible.

However, sunshine returns Tuesday and temperatures will climb back into the low 60s! Winds will be lighter as high pressure builds in.

After a warm and lovely Saturday in the low 80s, we have made it to our First Alert Day.

A lake wind advisory is in effect for the region through 10 p.m. Friday.

It's been a warm start to the weekend across Central Florida, with temps soaring into the mid and upper 80s.

Thunderstorms will be gradually ending from west to east with a cold frontal passage early Saturday morning, bringing an end to the severe threat.
