The First Alert Day will be in effect Tuesday because a cold front will bring strong to severe storms to the area.

A cold front will be moving through in the afternoon and will possibly bring strong to severe storms to the area. The Storm Prediction Center has much of the TV6 viewing area under a slight risk (level 2/5) because of the potential for damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes. Moderate to heavy rain will be present in some storms as well.

Day 2 Severe Outlook
Day 2 Severe Outlook(em)

This situation is HIGHLY “Conditional”. What that means is that if we get any rain from weakening thunderstorms in the morning that keeps cloud cover around into the afternoon the atmosphere, without sunlight, could remain relatively stable minimizing the risk of severe storms later in the day. However, if we DO get sunlight in the afternoon we could see more instability for the incoming cold front to work with later in the afternoon and into the evening. That would be giving us a better chance for severe storms. Since it IS a highly fluid situation at this point, make sure you have access to the latest weather info all day Tuesday from KWQC on the air, on-line and through our mobile applications.

Be “Sky Aware” and keep alert to changing weather conditions throughout the day. Make sure you have multiple outlets to receive warnings during this period, as some storms could form quickly. The QC Weather App is an excellent way to get the latest information concerning severe storms in the area.
