National Weather Service Warns of Storms This Weekend

The National Weather Service reports of possible scattered thunderstorms this evening, with a few of those storms producing large hail around quarter size and damaging winds up to 60mph.

Additional rounds of thunderstorms are expected late Saturday afternoon through Sunday. Severe weather will be possible with large hail and damaging winds the main threats. Tornadoes can’t be ruled out, but they appear to be a lower threat at this time.

The rounds of heavy rainfall could eventually lead to some flooding issues as well. The Storm Prediction Center has the entire Outlook area in a Slight risk, or level 2 out of 5 for Saturday. On Sunday, a Slight risk covers much of the area along and south of Interstate 80, with a Marginal risk to the north.
