First Alert Issued for Monday With Threat of Storms


Area residents can expect temperatures to slowly taper and level off in the low 70s as the sun goes down, with a chance of concentrated fog in certain areas that could cause hazardous conditions, according to the National Weather Service. The weekend does not appear to be a washout, however, if plans take you outdoors, remain weather aware.

The line of storms moved into the area from northwest to southeast, first ravaging some parts of Sedgwick County around 7:30 PM on Thursday night.

The severe storm prediction center (SPC) has placed most of CT in a "Slight" risk of severe weather.

"The primary risk will be that of damaging winds, though, some 1" diameter or bigger hail also looks possible.
