1- WE ARE IN A SLIGHT RISK AND VERY CLOSE TO THE ENHANCED RISK, NORTH OF US PER SPC, FOR SEVERE WEATHER LATER TODAY. There is a cold front and dryline involved in all this mess so you really should pay very close attention to weather conditions today.
2– HIGH WINDS AND LARGE HAIL WILL BE THE MAIN THREATS. TIMING APPEARS TO BE FROM 4PM SATURDAY UNTIL 3 AM SUNDAY MORNING.
3- Overnight we experienced strong winds and heavy rainfall in a short amount of time and this may occur today as the storms along the front and dryline push through the area. Per guidance, we may see storm form pretty close so just be prepared and have a plan to take cover if this happens.
