Risk of severe storms, flooding through tonight

Risk of severe storms, flooding through tonight

As those move east the threat for large hail, damaging wind, and a tornado or two will be on the rise.

Saturday, as the cold front moves from the Saginaw Bay region to the I-69 corridor, more storms are possible from those areas and anywhere farther south.

It won't be raining the entire weekend, but Chicago-area residents should keep umbrellas and rain jackets handy as storms roll into the area, said Kevin Donofrio, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Chicago-area office. Anytime around lunch storms look to develop in the Texas Panhandle near an old remnant boundary. This simply suggests that the threat for strong to severe thunderstorms does exist Friday evening and night.

The same is true for the image showing the future radar at 1 a.m. Friday night.

Flash flooding was a major issue in Friday night's storms as well, prompting multiple calls for water rescues throughout the area. The setup is very similar to what occurred Wednesday night when severe winds caused damage in LaGrange, Kosciusko and Fulton Counties. Notice the entire area is in the threat zone for severe weather.

Most of the state, including central Oklahoma, is at risk for severe weather Friday afternoon and into the evening, according to the National Weather Service. More storms will be possible in Wichita during the mid-afternoon hours and a few could be severe. A flood watch for much of North and South Central Kansas is in effect through Saturday morning. Locally heavy rainfall will also be possible, mainly northwest of Interstate 44. Unfortunately, the risk for storms will continue throughout the holiday weekend with any storms having the potential to become strong.
