More storms are expected to move through later this afternoon.

Sunday: A 20 percent chance of showers before 1 p.m., partly sunny, high near 64.

All types of severe weather will be possible, including large hail, damaging winds, heavy rain and an isolated tornado or two. Right now, the threat of strong to severe storms on Friday looks very low.
