La Crosse sounds tornado sirens for 'Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week'

Once the storm system passes, it will be much cooler on Saturday with highs in the low 60s. "Threats of large hail, damaging winds, tornadoes, and locally heavy rainfall are all possible during this event".

Two tornado drills scheduled today, April 12, are created to refresh, remind and educate residents about the seasonal threats from severe weather. If they are out there, they'll likely be strong to severe. A RED FLAG WARNING is in effect from Noon until 10 p.m. this evening over the western portions of North Texas.

Thunderstorms will develop along a dry line in southeastern Kansas.

"If the dryline doesn't make it as far east as we initially anticipated, there could be storms from Denton to Fort Worth to Cleburne - or even west of there by early afternoon", said National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Huckaby.

We should see strong to severe storms race through East Texas during the rest of the day today with the stronger storms expected once they arrive in our area.

The cold front sweeps through during the evening and overnight.

Stay ahead of the storms while on-the-go with the KY3 Weather App.

The lows on Sunday morning will be in the upper 20s to low 30s in some areas.
