Tornado watch in effect for Richmond metro

Take Part In Statewide Tornado Drill

The National weather service says that a significant winter storm is expected Friday afternoon into Saturday evening and will likely include all precipitation types, strong winds, and blizzard conditions.

There is also a chance for thunderstorms on Saturday, but severe weather is not expected.

It hardly feels like spring - what with a winter storm in the offing for the weekend - but the National Weather Service wants folks to think about tornadoes.

Once the storms move east of the metro, they are expected to form a line, making damaging winds a bigger threat. The system was moving over states like MS and Alabama on Saturday, he said.

An ugly weekend weather forecast also could be a unsafe one, with 2-4 inches of rainfall Saturday bringing flooding potential and severe storms possible.
