Weather Alert: Severe threat this afternoon and evening

Weather

The Storm Prediction Center has placed our area under a Marginal Risk (threat level 1 of 5) for severe weather this afternoon and evening.

Potential Threats: Damaging wind gusts are our main concern, but hail and a tornado cannot be ruled out. Downpours may lead to some brief nuisance flooding in low-lying and poor drainage areas. Overall, the threat for severe weather is low.

Timing: Main window of opportunity for strong to severe storms to develop for our area will roughly be around 2 PM – 6 PM. A few storms may develop before then.

How to Prepare: Be sure you have multiple ways to receive weather alerts. Secure any loose outdoor decor. Brush up on your severe weather safety plan – know where your safe place is and be sure it is ready for you, your family, and your pets. Know where to go if you will not be home.
