The Storm Prediction Center has northwest Missouri under an "Enhanced" Risk while northeast Kansas is still under a "Slight" Risk. for severe thunderstorms on Friday. The system was moving over states like MS and Alabama on Saturday, he said.

All modes of severe weather will be possible: large hail, damaging winds, a few tornadoes and flash flooding.


The Weather Service said Madison should see rain and more rain Friday and Saturday, before the rain starts to switch to a rain/snow/freezing rain mix on Sunday.

At 8 p.m., the heaviest storms extended in a roughly north-to-south line from Staunton to Farmville to Raleigh, N.C., and continued moving on an east-to-northeast path across the Piedmont. The squall line is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall of 1 to 2 inches, with locally heavier amounts, and winds of 30-40 miles per hour.

"We were just practicing for a tornado in case one really does come through because it's important to be ready", student Brecken Bancuk said. Skies will turn partly cloudy Sunday night, with a low around 35 and east southeast wind of 6 to 10 miles per hour.

Monday, the forecast calls for sunny skies and a high near 54, with a west northwest wind of 5 to 8 miles per hour, the weather service said.
