Knoxville — Marion County Emergency Management Corrdinator Jeff Anderson asks residents to remain "weather aware" for the next couple of days.
This weekend holds the potential for severe weather. All modes of severe weather are possible and can happen quickly.
"They can change in a hurry, go from good to bad," Anderson said. Marion County has already seen some strong winds and rain this morning (Friday, April 13).
Anderson was unable to take part in today's conference call, but shared this information from the weather service:
"This afternoon, the Des Moines and La Crosse Weather Forecast Offices conducted conference calls to provide glimpse into what the weekend will bring. A warm front will start to lift across the state Saturday afternoon causing numerous showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms are expected to produce large hail and damaging winds. Both offices are predicting large hail, high winds and possible tornadoes."
Another conference call is scheduled for Saturday.
