Timing Update On Potential For Severe Weather

We certainly hope that you are having a great Sunday evening while we experience rain, thunder, and lighting in many of the counties in our listening areas.
There has been an update to the timeline for the storms to reach our coverage areas. According to the Facebook page for the National Weather Service, the “Nudged Enhanced/Moderate Risks slightly farther south (warm front having trouble lifting north). Pushed end times a bit later.”

According to the National Weather Service, the levels of risk are:
Moderate Risk: Strong Tornadoes, Damaging winds up to 80 mph, and golf ball-sized hail.
Enhanced Risk: Tornadoes, Damaging winds up to 70 mph, and golf ball-sized hail.
Slight Risk: Damaging winds up to 60 mph and quarter-sized hail.
Marginal Risk: Threats mentioned above are less likely but cannot be completely ruled out.
