MARCH 1 AT 10 A.M. Storms are moving through the Allen area Wednesday morning with the possibility of turning severe. Hail and gusty winds are the main threat. Severe weather also is expected Thursday afternoon into evening (6-9 p.m.). All modes of severe weather are possible.

You can put the radio near your bed to wake you up if you’re asleep, and there’s adaptive technology available for people with vision or hearing impairments. View NOAA radio frequencies.
