MARCH 16 AT 9 A.M. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop today with a severe threat this afternoon and evening. Large hail greater than golf ball size will be the main threat. A damaging wind threat will increase as a cold front approaches late this afternoon. There also is potential for tornadoes into the evening hours. Residents should secure outdoor items and write their home addresses on their trash and recycling carts to help identify them if they blow away.
Please stay alert and be prepared for severe weather by monitoring local weather updates, having a plan in place, and keeping a way to receive weather alerts handy.
If you hear sirens, you should get indoors, find shelter and seek information. The best source for weather warnings is an NOAA all-hazards weather radio which activates when it receives a radio signal from the NWS. 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
