We have seen multiple tornadoes this week in the tristate and, unfortunately, our chances of severe weather have carried into the weekend. The National Weather Service has placed the WBKR listening area under a SLIGHT RISK of severe weather this afternoon and evening. Here's what we could expect.
From the National Weather Service:
TODAY AND TONIGHT
SHOWERS AND SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WITH LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN SHOULD CONTINUE INTO THIS MORNING AS A WARM FRONT PASSES THROUGH THE AREA.

THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE
WEATHER. THE PRIMARY CONCERNS DURING THIS TIME INCLUDE LARGE HAIL
AND DAMAGING WINDS. THE SPIN UP OF A TORNADO CANNOT BE RULED OUT.
