After a number of tornadoes swept across the Midwest last week, with storms that resulted in several deaths, the region is expected to see a scaled-down repeat performance this week, forecasters said Monday. Each year, the National Weather Service and North Carolina Department of Public Safety team up to bring awareness about severe weather to residents of North Carolina.

As warmer weather begins to move into the area, now is the time to make sure you and your family have a severe weather plan in place.

Rain could move into the area by late afternoon, and the severe weather was forecast to hit after 6 p.m. Wind gusts could reach up to 70 miles per hour, and tornadoes are possible.

For questions or comments about tornado and severe weather preparedness or the annual drill should be directed to Saline County Emergency Management at 785-826-611. The tornado watch is through 10 p.m.

Local tornado warning sirens, NOAA Weather Radio alarms, and the Emergency Alert System will be activated to signal the start of the drill.

According to Finney County's website, anyone with a desire to learn how to identify severe weather is encouraged to attend.
