So hang in there with me...it could be a rough day ahead. I'll be at work through the duration and break in on WLBT as needed. I'll also be on Twitter & Facebook intermittently. Have a great weekend and if you experience some snow, let me know about it!
A strong cold front with a series of disturbances will enter the state today and linger through Saturday. Tornadoes, large hail, damaging winds and heavy rain will be possible, so please have your weather radio on. I have attached the NWS's graphic depiction of what is the expected and the time frames we're all looking at. Find your county and note what is possible.
The worst of the weather should be gone towards dawn Saturday morning, however much colder air will move in behind the front. There will be enough wrap around moisture filtering in behind the front that some snowflakes could fall for portions of the state. I've attached the graphic showing where a few of you may see a late February treat!
