We are enjoying 70+ degree day temps in February which means... we'll pay dearly.

According to the NWS, things are going to get dicey tonight. They issued the following Hazardous Outlook for our area:

Thunderstorms are possible again tonight ahead of an approaching cold front. Some of these storms may become severe. Hail and damaging winds are the main threats, but an isolated tornado or two will be possible in the strongest storms.

Showers and thunderstorms before 3am, then rain and possibly a thunderstorm, mainly after 3am. Low around 34. Breezy, with a south southwest wind 20 to 28 mph becoming west northwest after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 38 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%.
Here is the timing of when the storms will be hitting our area.
If the weather turns dangerous, we will be going wall-to-wall with our weather partners at Eyewitness News. You can listen on any radio or via our app.

Be Prepared - Have an Emergency Kit

  • Water (one gallon per person per day for several days, for drinking and sanitation)
  • Food (at least a several-day supply of non-perishable food)
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert
  • Flashlight
  • First aid kit
  • Extra batteries

Additional Emergency Supplies

Consider adding the following items to your emergency supply kit based on your individual needs:

  • Soap, hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes to disinfect surfaces
  • Prescription medications. About half of all Americans take a prescription medicine every day. An emergency can make it difficult for them to refill their prescription or to find an open pharmacy. Organize and protect your prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, and vitamins to prepare for an emergency.
  • Non-prescription medications such as pain relievers, anti-diarrhea medication, antacids or laxatives
  • Prescription eyeglasses and contact lens solution
  • Infant formula, bottles, diapers, wipes and diaper rash cream
  • Pet food and extra water for your pet
  • Cash or traveler's checks
  • Important family documents such as copies of insurance policies, identification and bank account records saved electronically or in a waterproof, portable container
  • Sleeping bag or warm blanket for each person
  • Complete change of clothing appropriate for your climate and sturdy shoes
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Matches in a waterproof container
  • Feminine supplies and personal hygiene items
  • Mess kits, paper cups, plates, paper towels and plastic utensils
  • Paper and pencil
  • Books, games, puzzles or other activities for children
