National Weather Service forecasts heavy rain, possible thunderstorms Sunday night into Monday

The National Weather Service has canceled a tornado watch for the Tri-County area.

Other northeastern Kansas counties included in the watch are Anderson, Atchison, Brown, Coffey, Doniphan, Franklin, Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson, Leavenworth, Linn, Lyon, Miami, Osage, Shawnee, Wabaunsee and Wyandotte.

Today, simulated tornado watches and warnings are being issued to test the statewide warning and communications systems.

While tornado chances are not high, Grabryan said winds reaching 60-70 miles per hour can cause a great deal of damage.

An emergency manager and WAFB-TV meteorologist Jay Grymes reported damage in parking lots near the Industriplex area of Baton Rouge, possibly caused by a tornado, at 8:13 a.m.

He said the National Weather Service is expected to have a teleconference with the EMA directors this afternoon.

Jordyn Friel and Miranda Nutter picked up RBIs as well in the inning to give the Lady Panthers a 12-2 10-run rule victory. Penn had even more luck in the third inning, where a home run and a two-run double extended their lead to 5-1.

A tornado watch is in effect until midnight for much of the Richmond metro.

The rain is predicted to taper off in the afternoon from southwest and northeast as mainly dry conditions take over after 7 p.m., Pollina said. The flooding of roads, low lying areas, areas with poor drainage, and area rivers will be possible, according to the Weather Service.

"The line of severe weather remains west of Charlotte at this time", said Wilmoth.

A freeze now looks a little more likely Saturday morning, especially over the western and northern KCBD viewing area.

Here in Emporia, we have a chance of a rain-snow mix late Saturday afternoon into evening along with some freezing drizzle and snow after sunset.

Sunny skies and slightly warmer temperatures kick off the new workweek with highs in the lower 50s on Monday to the middle 60s by Tuesday through Thursday.
