Severe Weather Possible

Just last week at this time, we were talking about the high probability of severe weather. Once again, the bad weather is in the forecast for today.

A strong cold front will swing into the state today bringing periods of heavy rain, large hail, damaging winds and the chance for tornadoes. As I mentioned last night, what makes this system different is the timing. Whereas last week's cold front brought severe weather in the overnight hours (the worst possible time because most people are asleep and don't care), this cold front will arrive during the daylight hours. However, the afternoon and evening commutes could be alittle rough. The National Weather Service has released this graphic this morning. Take a look at where you are located and have your weather radio on throughout the day and early evening hours. Let's hope it speeds up and is out of here before dark!
