Severe Weather Risk

The National Weather Service said severe thunderstorms will be possible later this afternoon, through the evening and overnight hours across the Four State Region. Large hail and damaging thunderstorm wind gusts will be the primary threats. However, an isolated tornado will certainly be possible. In addition to the severe weather threat, excessive heavy rainfall will be possible, impacting flood prone and poor drainage areas mainly.

The DeSoto Sheriff’s Office said, “It is worth noting that our area is at a lower risk than recent storms. We still want to inform our residents due to the wind gusts and hail predicted with this storm however.  It may be a good idea to go ahead and pick up and loose or light-weight objects in your yard.”
