Early today will be continued scattered thunderstorms with increasing coverage late today/tonight into early Saturday. A few of these storms may be severe and fast moving. Damaging winds will be the main threat as storms will be tracking at upwards of 60 mph. An isolated tornado can’t be ruled out.”
