Severe Storms Possible





Another wave of storms will approach the area late this afternoon into this evening.  Storms will be quite widespread mid/late evening into the overnight (8 pm onward).   There will be a lot of lightning -- make sure you have proper shelter as the storms approach.  [There are severe weather safety tips on the main weather page.]

We have a MODERATE risk of severe weather.  The primary threat will be damaging winds.  However, some large hail is also possible.  A few isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

With the extremely muggy air in place, storms will unleash torrential downpours.  Areas that see repeated thunderstorms will accumulate a few inches of rain in short amount of time.

You can purchase a severe weather radio at Kroger for a discounted price.  More details can be found here:  http://www.wtol.com/Global/story.asp?S=12681658
