Calm before the storm

Wednesday, February 19, 2014


Byron says temperatures will stay above freezing this morning, and there is zero ice on the roadways. We'll be right back into the 50's this afternoon under partly to mostly sunny skies.
Thursday will bring the threat for severe thunderstorms.  The entire area will likely be upgraded to a MODERATE RISK of severe storms for Thursday, with damaging winds as the main hazard.  Temperatures will push into the mid 60s Thursday, fueled by gusty southwest winds of 15-30 mph.  The latest storm track on Sunrise.
