We are still watching out for the possibility of multiple rounds of severe weather as we head through Saturday and Sunday. Our first batch of storms - due in here during the morning hours Saturday - should feature the most significant threat for severe weather and tornadoes. We'll also be on the lookout for severe storms overnight Saturday into Sunday, and again on Sunday afternoon. Folks will need to stay weather-alert these days and must have a way to get watches and warnings. As we get into Monday, the skies will stay cloudy and we will continue a chance of showers, but the temperatures will dip back down in the 50s. Another rain chance will come our way in the Wednesday/Thursday time-frame along with a brief warm-up, but look for a cool-down and dry weather by Friday and next weekend.
Again, we want to stress this weekend that folks need a way to get watches and warning, and they need to know what to do if one is issued for your county. Get the WTVM weather app and sign up for our FREE severe weather text alerts to help you stay ahead of the storm!
