Sky Alert Weather Forecast

Saturday is a WYMT Severe Weather Alert Day.

We're watching for the possibility for strong to severe thunderstorms to form this afternoon and evening.

The rain we had earlier has moved out and skies are trying to clear, bringing sunshine to much of the region.

The clearing will allow a warm front from our south to push warm air into the southern counties, which is where our greatest area of concern is.

As those storms start to fire, supercells (very strong storms) will be possible. If temperatures are above 70, which they are forecast to be in the Cumberland Valley and along the I-75 corridor, those storms could ramp up quickly.

That's not to say the entire area couldn't see some stronger or even severe storms. The best chance for the worst storms will be clustered down south.

The main threats from the storms include damaging winds and hail, but there is a tornado threat, especially for those folks in the Cumberland Valley. It looks the worst of the storms will begin to fire between 3 p.m. and midnight.

Those chances for storms will continue into the night before dying down. Overnight lows will drop to close to 50.

After a few morning showers, the rain moves out and sunshine moves in. It sticks around for the first of the new week.

Keep it locked here for the latest updates.
