We have another First Alert Weather Day for this afternoon and evening!
The main concern will be for damaging winds and hail. The Storm Prediction Center has placed most of our area under a slight risk (2 out of 5 on the severe weather threat scale and counties shaded in yellow) for this afternoon and evening.
Counties to our north and northeast are under a marginal risk of severe storms per SPC. That's a 1 out of 5 on the severe weather threat scale.
A few showers can't be ruled out during the morning hours. Then a few scattered showers and storms will be possible through the afternoon and evening. Again, some of those storms could be strong to severe, so make sure you have a plan in place to go indoors if you have plans to be outdoors today.
Here's a look at one of our computer models around sunset this evening showing scattered showers and thunderstorms..
Any showers and thunderstorms will diminish late tonight.
For Memorial Day tomorrow, we will be watching the radar closely as well. SPC has a good portion of our area under a marginal risk of severe storms tomorrow too.
We will of course update you on social media and tonight when you tune in with Ros at 6pm and 11pm. Keep your NBC12 weather app handy too to keep track of the radar and get alerts right to your phone!
