Statewide tornado drill for Minnesota and Wisconsin

WEEKEND WEATHER Severe Thunderstorms followed by cold front issued for Texas Coast

All week, forecasters have thought the dryline would be east of Fort Worth when storms started rumbling. Large hail, thunderstorm winds of 60 miles per hour or higher along with isolated tornadoes are all possible.

The Team says the storms will work into the area by late afternoon and continue to move east during the evening and night. Large hail and damaging winds are the main threats. Highs will reach the low 80s around Topeka with lower temps to the far northwest where the front will pass earlier in the day.

Dryline is moving a little slower than anticipated, so DFW now has a little better chance of seeing some storms this PM/eve. If actual severe storms are expected in the state on Thursday, April 12, the tornado drills will be postponed until Friday, April 13 with the same times.

Total snow accumulations of 8 to 15 inches are possible across central and west central Minnesota, with totals tapering off to 3 or 6 inches across south central Minnesota and west central Wisconsin.

The weather threats are expected to include damaging winds on Friday ahead of the early Saturday cold front. Tornado watches have been issued for the majority of East Texas until 10 p.m. this evening.

"Thunderstorms will return to the region on Friday afternoon".

The lows on Sunday morning will be in the upper 20s to low 30s in some areas.

Plenty of sunshine, breezy and staying cool. You can also download our KSNT Storm Track Weather App for free.
