Severe storms possible Thursday afternoon/evening

Thursday, 25 Mar, 2021

Want the latest Power of 5 weather team updates wherever you go? These storms will not be severe, but heavy rain and gusty winds are likely. This will allow the ground and waterways time to absorb and filter water from earlier heavy rains. The National Weather Service will send out mock/fake warnings across the NOAA weather radio. There is a small chance for a few storms to produce an isolated tornado as well. One of the many tools they use to keep you informed of impending severe weather is the Storm Prediction Center's Convective Outlooks.

The areas in dark green have a marginal risk (Level 1) for severe weather today. A few embedded t'storms are possible overnight.

Lows tonight will run in the 50s with strong southeast to south-southeast winds 15-33 miles per hour.

Some of those same spots had up to 7 inches of rain last week, so it won't take much to cause flooding in some areas.
