First Alert Weather: Tornado Watch issued for the Suncoast

With severe weather in the forecast, you need make sure you are prepared and remain weather aware before and during the storms!

A hard freeze is expected with overnight lows in the mid-20s.

The area will experience showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 2 p.m.

The primary threat will be wind gusts of 40 to 60 miles per hour, forecasters say.

The strongest storms will produce heavy rain, hail and damaging wind gusts. Another dozen outages were reported in Colleton County. There is also a special marine warning in effect through 3 p.m. and a lake wind advisory in place through 8 p.m., both of which warn of hazardous boating conditions. A warning means that action is required because of immediate threats.

The tornado watch covers areas south of Interstate 64 and west of Interstate 95, including metro Richmond, South Hill, Famville, Dinwiddie, Goochland, Crewe and Lawrenceville. At greatest risk today are vehicles, especially high-profile vehicles such as delivery trucks and 18-wheelers, on north-to-south and northwest-to-southeast oriented roads.

A winter storm watch has been issued from Saturday morning to Sunday evening in Columbia, Dodge, Sauk and Green Lake counties, with the biggest danger coming from accumulating ice on trees and power lines.

Rain and thunderstorms are predicted to begin in the Meridian region around 1 a.m. Saturday, with the worst of the storm passing through between 6 a.m. and midnight Saturday.

Monday's going to be "a very washout morning", News 12 meteorologist Bruce Avery said.

We will continue to update this story as the forecast changes.
