Saturday has been declared a First Alert Weather Day due to the potential for strong to severe storms in the morning. A line of strong storms will quickly move east across the area Saturday morning and should move out of the area by early Saturday afternoon. Right now, the main threat looks like it’s going to be strong to damaging wind gusts. The tornado threat is low, but not zero. Large hail and locally heavy rainfall will also be possible with the strongest storms. Widespread flooding or flash flooding is not expected because this line of storms will be moving rather quickly. However, localized flooding will be possible in low-lying or flood prone areas, especially since we’ve seen quite a bit of rain already this week.
