A round of storms yesterday (and a couple of tornado warnings) and we could see even more of them today.  The National Weather Service has placed parts of the WBKR listening area under a SLIGHT RISK of severe weather for this afternoon and evening and we may see additional chances for severe weather this weekend.  Here's the latest forecast!
