Forecasters warn of high winds sweeping across San Diego County

NWS confirms eight tornado touch-downs in six counties

The National Weather Service in Memphis has issued a TORNADO WATCH for East Arkansas, West Tennessee including Memphis and Shelby County and North Mississippi until 6 a.m.

The risky weather threat should end "prior to daybreak" on Saturday as the cold front is expected to clear the area of storms, according to forecasters.

Meteorologists predicted a high chance for damaging winds and a slight possibility of hail and tornadoes.

Winds could bring downed trees and power lines, the release states.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected before 10 p.m., then a chance of showers between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m.

The WSFA First Alert Weather Team has declared a First Alert Weather Day in anticipation of widespread heavy rain and strong to severe thunderstorms. A warning means that action is required because of immediate threats.

Besides the obvious refresher, another reason for the tests is because it allows the public to test their weather radios, which can only be activated using a real tornado warning code. The Watch is in effect until 9 PM tonight.

A firefighter reported that 2.25 inches of rain had fallen near Fremaux town center in Slidell through 12:38 p.m. If the warning area includes Duke's main campus, the sirens will also be activated along with text and email notifications to direct individuals to seek shelter immediately. "We're expecting a lot more snow than we typically would see in a storm, especially this late in the season, we're getting into April, mid April, here". Check back for updates.
