    NBC10 First Alert Weather: Dry Conditions to Start Weekend

    Severe storms are finally clear and the sun is out Friday. NBC10 First Alert Weather meteorologist Krystal Klei looks toward the rest of the weekend. (Published Friday, May 31, 2019)

    What to Know

    • You can leave the umbrella at home Friday as clear conditions are expected during the day after three days of storms.

    • At night some more storms are possible, but are not expected to be severe.

    • The mainly dry conditions last into Saturday.

    Following four days of severe weather this week, we can finally catch our breaths Friday into most of Saturday.

    A lovely Friday evening with temperatures settling into the mid-60s overnight is great for outdoor activities and plans. 

    The first round of severe storms plowed through the area Sunday evening with damaging winds and hail followed by another three consecutive intense rounds Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

    Damaging winds, hail up to the size of eggs, flash flooding, endless lightning strikes, and several tornadoes rolled through parts of our area.

    Clouds build Saturday as temps again are expected to be in the 80s. The humidity stays low, so we stay comfortable. Showers may arrive as early as 8 p.m. north and west of Philadelphia Saturday evening and by 11 p.m. in Philadelphia. These showers will be on the light side, so don’t expect any downpours.

    Sunday morning though, the weather looks good to be outside with a mixture of sunshine and clouds with temperatures climbing into the 80s.

    We need to watch another round of gusty thunderstorms Sunday afternoon, especially after 2 p.m. While those storms will contain some brief, heavy downpours, gusty winds, and lightning, they will be nothing like the powerhouse storms we toughed out this past week.

    They should last an hour, at most, and we should dry out by late Sunday evening.

    Crisp, breezy, sunny, and refreshing weather starts off our new workweek on Monday.
