ALERT: Tornado Watch until 9 PM Friday

Students workers statewide to practice tornado drills during Severe Weather Awareness Week

Locals are encouraged to watch and be prepared for severe weather.

The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for Anderson County until 10 p.m. tonight. Later, a mock tornado warning will be issued at 6:45 p.m.to give families and second-shift workers a chance to practice their emergency plans.

However, portions of Franklin and Titus counties are under an Enhanced Risk (3/5), and Texarkana is under a Moderate Risk (4/5).

The Region 8 Storm Team says that damaging winds and flash flooding are the primary threats, with isolated tornadoes and large hail secondary threats.

It is possible that the Fed would do more for the economy if it does not raise rates at all, at least for the time being. A large body of evidence shows the purchasing power of Americans has not increased much in years.

The Team says the storms will work into the area by late afternoon and continue to move east during the evening and night. You should notice rapidly growing clouds by noon to 2 p.m.

We should see strong to severe storms race through East Texas during the rest of the day today with the stronger storms expected once they arrive in our area. Large hail, thunderstorm winds of 60 miles per hour or higher along with isolated tornadoes are all possible. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Friday afternoon and Saturday for much of central and southern Minnesota and west central Wisconsin.

You're already in the right place for detailed weather information across Northeast Kansas.

Stay with the 13 Weather Team for the latest updates.
