A brief warmup this week is setting up for some potential wild weather Friday.
On the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday, Ed Shimon at the National Weather Service in Lincoln told Regional Radio Friday morning could offer dicey weather, and then some more severe weather roars through later in the day Friday.
The biggest threat for Illinois will be high winds of up to 70 MPH. Shimon indicates other areas in the midwest could experience some more severe storms.
Shimon indicates this won't be the end of the threat of severe weather. He looks into next week and points out we will see more days with high winds and chances for severe weather.
Shimon encourages having a couple of options for receiving severe weather information, particularly during the non-waking hours. He points out often times the tornado sirens are not audible in many homes so you need to have a way of being alerted to the threat of severe weather.
