Slight risk of severe storms today

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA -

(WRCB) - With April 27th Friday, lots of folks get a little nervous still when the threat of severe weather looms.  Today we will see some storms, but not even in the same universe as 4/27/11. 

We have already seen one round of strong storms moving through the northern part of the area this morning producing gusty winds and hail.

As a cold front gets closer to the Tennessee Valley, we could see more of the same from the late morning through the afternoon.

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Slight Risk of severe weather for all of the WRCB viewing area.

There is a Severe Thunderstorm Watch in effect until 1pm.  That mans storms producing strong winds and small hail could develop within the watch area. 

The threat of tornadoes is EXTREMELY small and no a major concern though I will be keeping an eye out for a renegade storm that may produce one.
