FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: Strong storms possible Sunday

"Unfortunately we are still pretty far in advance of the events and details are limited", James Carpenter, meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said Saturday morning.

Areas of the East Coast are experiencing warmer temperatures for the first part of the weekend, but cooler weather is expected starting Sunday as Storm Xanto moves in that direction.

Temperatures climb into the upper 70s and lower 80s with a gusty south-southwest breeze. Today, many of us hit a high of 80-degrees and above! A brief tornado is possible, but the main threat from any severe thunderstorms will be damaging winds up to 60-70 miles per hour. FIRST ALERT DAYS are issued to inform you of inconvenient, hazardous, or potentially risky weather in our viewing area-weather that could impact you and your family.

We're watching a major storm system that's sparking a multi-state blizzard warning, stretching from Kansas to Minnesota. This will increase winds and very warm air will move into the Midlands for Saturday. However, an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out and heavy downpours could lead to urban flooding. The best chances for severe weather tonight lie in our NE counties.

When will severe weather arrive where I live? . It will be chilly on Monday morning, with more sun with highs in the mid 50s again. This storm will continue to track to the east, rather slowly, over the next 24 hours. It will also be breezy.

Any fog will start dissipating at daybreak Sunday as winds start increasing. A few of these storms could become severe.
