Severe Storms Possible On Sunday

We're still a couple of days away from the chance of severe storms, but I wanted everyone to be on guard before we started the weekend. Here's our thoughts, as of 7:30 am on Friday morning:

  • Storms and heavy rain is likely on Saturday, but severe weather is not expected. Best chance of rain will be later in the day.
  • SUNDAY is the day we are most concerned about, at this time.
  • The greatest risk appears to be after 4:00 PM, with the peak between 7:00 PM and 10:00 PM.
  • Damaging, straight-line winds will be the greatest threat.
  • Large hail is possible.
  • Tornadoes are possible.
  • Storms should move out of Region 8 before midnight.
As of right now, this is our severe weather outlook from KAIT:

The above map may change through the weekend. In fact, we may bump some areas into the higher risk. This is what radar could look like on Sunday evening:

Follow us through the weekend on Twitter, Facebook, and on the KAIT weather App. The blog is on the App.

I will be traveling over the weekend to cheer on several Region 8 kids that are in the state competition of Odyssey of the Mind (including my own!). I will try to update the blog from the road and will update on Twitter. Watch Andrew Wilson on KAIT for the latest information, also.

If severe storms do occur on Sunday evening, all of us will be working to give you updates through the night.

As time permits, I will likely write a more technical blog for those that are weather geeks later today.
