In its storm update Saturday afternoon, the National Weather Service said much of MI is now in a lull between rounds of snowy and icy weather, with the second wave of precipitation beginning tonight and lasting through Sunday.

Gov. Scott Walker has declared April 9-13 as Wisconsin's Tornado & Severe Weather Awareness Week.

"Potentially strong tornadoes", large hail, and severe winds could be headed for Columbia County with a storm cell set to move through the area Friday afternoon, according to forecasters.

Tishomingo County, Mississippi, which is adjacent to the Shoals on the west side, already is under a flash flood watch, effective from 1 a.m. Saturday to 1 a.m. Sunday.

On Twitter, the Tampa Bay office of the National Weather Service said damaging winds remain a primary threat, but tornados are possible, particularly near the coast.

Here in Emporia, we have a chance of a rain-snow mix late Saturday afternoon into evening along with some freezing drizzle and snow after sunset. There will likely be a sharp gradient north of the heavy snow band, according to the weather service.

Western threats only increase regional instability - Assad
Meanwhile, the Russian military said the Syrian government is now in full control of Duoma, once held by rebels opposing Assad. It was not clear whether the presence of the investigators could affect the timing of any USA military action.


The entire Midlands area and parts of the Lowcountry are under a lake wind advisory until 8 p.m.

Urban areas of San Diego, which are not included in the high wind watch's boundaries, were expected to see wind speeds no higher than about 25 miles per hour, forecasters said.

Andrew Pritchett, NWS meteorologist, said it remains uncertain when the slow-moving front makes its way into the Valley.

"After the storms, we will have a cooldown".

A strong tornado can not be ruled out.

The high for Jasper Saturday is expected to be 75 degrees, although the high for Sunday and Monday will be 62 degrees, with lows at about 36 degrees.
