The SPC has upgraded our area to the “Slight Risk” area which is a Level 2 out of 5 for the likelihood to see severe weather. Storms could produce damaging winds, tornadoes, and/or larger hail.

The first three nights of Festival International looks good weather-wise. Warm and humid weather is in the forecast for this evening with rain chances at 30% but isolated activity should fade away during the evening hours. Unfortunately, models are being more aggressive with rain chances this weekend with some showcasing a wash-out throughout the day on Saturday. We are hoping this forecast will change for the better.
