Severe_weatherThen NOAA Storm Prediction Center currently has Marshall County included in the “Marginal” category (1 out of5) for the potential of severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Showers and thunderstorms will start moving in late morning in the west as a strong cold front approaches.

THREAT: Damaging winds and hail, as well as heavy downpours are the greatest threat, but a few isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

IMPACT: Strong winds may cause damage to trees, which could lead to downed powerlines and power outages. We could also see limbs or trees across roads. Heavy rain may cause localized flooding issues and ponding on road surfaces.

PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS: Monitor local news for weather updates and be prepared to take shelter should severe weather threaten.
