Severe storms possible Sunday night

16 Avril 2018

"The strongest storms will be capable of large hail and brief tornadoes", the weather service cautions, "especially over eastern counties during the mid-late afternoon".

With the storms comes a chance for wind damage, quarter-sized hail, localized downpours that could produce flash flooding in a few spots and isolated, brief tornadoes. Total ice and sleet accumulations of one to two tenths of an inch are possible across the southern third of Minnesota into west central Wisconsin. Severe thunderstorms are expected across the South and mid-Atlantic.

Individual storms within the line are moving north, but the line itself is inching east at a very slow pace.

The Storm Prediction Center warns of "numerous" severe storm cells possible.

Strong thunderstorms could be in the Foothills around 3 p.m. The snow is just one part of a massive storm system affecting areas from the Gulf Coast to northern Wisconsin and MI.

The Weather Service forecasts a slight chance of more rain Wednesday night, then highs of about 80 by the weekend.

". A lot of pieces have to come together today at exactly the right time to get severe weather today", forecasters said.

"There is a Slight to Enhanced Risk for severe weather Saturday".

Sunny skies and slightly warmer temperatures kick off the new workweek with highs in the lower 50s on Monday to the middle 60s by Tuesday through Thursday.

The National Weather Service is investigating whether a tornado may have touched down in the Midlands Sunday.
