Friday's Severe Weather

Today's storms need to be taken seriously. This storm has already had a history of fatalities out west, injuries and massive damage. Much of the state is under a tornado watch until 3pm. The most intense storms will be north of I-20 and east of I-55. These storms could include damaging wind gusts up to 80mph (which could bring down trees and power lines), strong tornadoes and hail larger than golf balls. Here is the NWS' graphic depiction of the timing of the storms. You can find your county here:

The worst of the storms will be out of the WLBT viewing area after 6pm. Anytime you wish, you can look at the WLBT radar by clicking here. You can also follow my micro-weather updates by following me on Twitter @BarbieBassett and "Liking" the Barbie Bassett WLBT page on Facebook.

More storms are possible next week. If you don't have a weather radio yet, perhaps the active weather will convince you to get one soon!

(Barbie will be the guest speaker at the MFWC State Convention Saturday morning at 7am and speaking at First Baptist Church of Flora Saturday at 9:30am.)
