Good afternoon.  Things are beginning to pick up in the Mid-South. 

A Tornado Watch is in effect until 9pm.  We've been dealing with steady 20-30 mph winds and gusts up to 45 mph already.  We could see periods of gusts in excess 60 mph, so wind damage is likely in some areas.  Hail up to an inch in size may fall , and ½" to 1" of rain in possible.

 The good news is it clears by 9 pm or 10 pm tonight leaving Friday looking beautiful.  The weekend has a 10%-20% chance for light rain with temps in the 60s on Saturday and 50s on Sunday.
