Severe Weather Heads for the Tri-State

Web Producer: Brad Maglinger

A tornado watch is in effect for the entire Tri-State area until 2:00 a.m. The Storm Prediction Center says a strong cold front will clash with warm and moist air over the area, which could trigger sever thunderstorms and even tornadoes.

The front will pass overnight. By early Saturday morning, colder and drier air will move in. High temperatures will be 20 degrees cooler than Friday, with afternoon readings in the mid-60s. Nightly lows will be in the mid-40s.

A tornado watch means conditions are favorable for strong thunderstorms with 60 MPH winds, large hail and tornadoes. You should review your safety plan during a tornado watch. If a warning is issued, move to a basement, away from windows or into an interior room of your home. You should abandon mobile homes and cars.
