Severe Expected Saturday

Friday's weather look nice with sunny skies and breezy conditions. Highs will be well into the 80s. A very strong spring storm system will begin approaching the area Saturday afternoon and night. Storms that form Saturday afternoon and night will likely be severe with strong winds and very large hail. There's also a chance that we may see a few tornadoes, especially with any storm that remains into Saturday evening.
Storms will continue into early Sunday before moving east of Sunday morning.
