“Most of the Severe stuff coming in tomorrow will be during the day, which is good,” says Weatherology Meteorologist Cara Foster, “We don’t need anything nocturnal…nocturnal storms are very scary, especially when we have more of an enhanced risk of severe weather throughout the area.”

She says that all modes, once again, will be possible…with large hail being the main threat…”Mainly going to be some winds, some hail and also some Tornadoes are possible throughout most of the state.”
