A tornado watch is issued when weather conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms that are capable of producing tornadoes.

Rain, snow, sleet and "all precipitation types" are likely with the storm that also is poised to deliver strong winds and blizzard conditions, the National Weather Service said.

Power outages are possible today, April 15, as severe weather moves across the Carolinas.

The immediate forecast does not include the spring and summertime hazard, but rather a significant winter storm expected to arrive Friday afternoon.

Another storm system moving through the valley late this week could bring some rain, according to the weather service.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has declared this week Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week.

Mostly sunny skies are in the forecast for Wednesday when the highs will warm up to between 55 and 60.

And, says one meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Greer, "here's the kitchen sink" - in the form of snow Sunday night in the North Carolina mountains. They are expected to enter the Tulsa area around 3 p.m.

The unsafe weather threat should end "prior to daybreak" on Saturday as the cold front is expected to clear the area of storms, according to forecasters.

"A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect Saturday and Saturday night up to 1 am". As this boundary slides east into at atmosphere that isn't as supportive for storms, impacts will fall in intensity a bit.

Wind gusts were expected to be around 40 miles per hour late Sunday night into early Monday morning and then diminish throughout the day, he said.
