ALERT DAY: Severe storms possible tonight

Today is an ALERT DAY as severe weather is possible this afternoon and evening! Storms are approaching our NW counties as of the 4-5PM time frame and will continue to move SE through our area into the early overnight period.

A TORNADO WATCH is in effect for much of our area until 11PM as a few tornadoes can’t be ruled out. Damaging wind gusts & hail will also be possible along this line of storms. Anticipate the storms to weaken and move out of the area just after midnight.

Breezy, cooler & drier conditions move back in for our Sunday as highs only rebound into the low 60s. We’ll start off in the 30s by the start of the week and temperatures will only reach the low-mid 50s by Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Another system arrives for the end of the upcoming work week, but severe weather is not anticipated at this time.

First Alert Forecast: Alert Day; Severe Threat Late Afternoon & Evening
