Storm threats lessened, but weather service urges to stay aware

03 April, 2017, 02:11 | Author: Eddie Kim

Police reported a tornado touched down at Indian River Road and Elbow Road at 6:25 p.m., according to a National Weather Service weather alert.

A tornado likely touched down southeast of Suffolk, and the storm continues to rotate as it moves across Chesapeake. There is a possibility of storms moving across the same areas creating pockets of higher totals through Monday. A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect from 1 pm Sunday through 3 pm Monday. Forecasters said they expect "an active severe weather event" Thursday in an area stretching from New Orleans to Cincinnati with the biggest risk for severe storms in northern MS and western Tennessee. Thunderstorms are possible in some areas until 5 a.m. Friday.

The thunderstorm risk for Wyandotte County is marginal today.

The primary severe weather threats will be large damaging hail greater than 1 inch in diameter and damaging winds in excess of 60 miles per hour.

As severe thunderstorms have intensified along the state line, conditions are right for large hail and possibly tornadoes, according to a National Weather Service bulletin.

Part of metro Atlanta and North Georgia are under a severe weather advisory. It says there is a risk of baseball-sized hail and tornadoes, including strong ones, in that area. Isolated flooding issues could also arise. The line itself will also pose a tornado threat due to a lot of shear in the atmosphere, in addition to potentially widespread damaging straight line winds. The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma places a moderate risk, second only to high, over a large area including southwest Louisiana. It is possible we could see one or two inches of rainfall with this system.

Stay weather aware. You can follow us on Twitter & Facebook for information & to ask questions.

The greatest threat will be between 4 and 11 a.m.
