Saturday is a First Alert Weather Day.
We are still expecting a cold front to push through by Saturday evening. Scattered showers and some thunderstorms will develop. There is a slight chance that a few of these storms may reach severe limits. Not everyone will see thunderstorms, and some people could remain dry all day. Rain totals range from about 0.10” to around 0.50”.
The main threats are damaging winds over 60 miles-per-hour, locally heavy rain, and isolated tornados are possible. Small hail may also fall from the strongest storms. The highest risk for severe storms will be from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Don’t panic, just stay informed. Have a way to receive weather alerts such as THE First Alert WX App or a NOAA WX Radio
Please have a way to receive weather information (weather alerts too) between 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday. Minor timing adjustments are possible, but likely an afternoon, early evening risk. pic.twitter.com/u2nRaFVZGl— WTOC Cutter Martin (@CutterMartin) April 6, 2018
Storm coverage will be scattered and not everyone will get soaked. If you have outdoor plans Saturday, keep an eye on the First Alert Forecast. You may have to move indoors for a time, allow storms to push through, then resume your plans.
Make sure your severe weather alerts are turned on in the WTOC Weather App Saturday afternoon and evening. Download the app for free below:
