Thunderstorms and tornadoes affected Broward and Miami Dade counties Tuesday afternoon

I think the greatest potential for severe weather will remain south of I-20 based on this afternoon's model data. Due to the threat for severe storms, a weather alert day has been issued for Friday. Meteorologists are able to observe weather patterns and predict the likelihood of severe weather several days ahead of time.

During a severe storm, particularly in the spring and summer months, it's not uncommon for households to lose electricity, heat or water for a period of time. Damaging winds and torrential rainfall will be the biggest threat but an isolated tornado may be possible as well. It looks like an active severe weather day there.

By the end of the work week, we are tracking a strong cold front that could bring scattered showers and a few strong storms to the region late Friday night into early Saturday morning.

We've had mostly sunny skies throughout the afternoon as temperatures warmed to around 80 degrees.

The collision killed 15 people who were on the bus and injured another 14. "These poor families - I can't imagine". It was a devastating site. "I don't think anything we could ever say would be enough", Wilby said.

It will be a warm evening again across Mid-Missouri, with winds holding tight out of the southwest from 18-22 miles per hour with gusty conditions.

Forecasters cautioned that the timing is still uncertain, but the main window for storms could be from 10 a.m. Saturday until 6 a.m. Sunday. If they arrive in the afternoon, we could have a much higher risk for severe weather. In any event, Sunday will be a First Alert Weather Day.

This Friday we will see our first increased chance for severe weather outbreak this season. Sunday night and Monday night lows drop into the 40s. High temperatures will only reach the mid-70s.

The agency's Shreveport office said that "potentially strong tornadoes" will be possible Friday in its coverage area, which includes southwest Arkansas.
