Hazardous weather outlook for Wednesday

Published 11:13 am Wednesday, April 5, 2017

A warm front will sweep into our area this afternoon bringing isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of these storms could be strong with the primary threats being small hail and gusty winds. Another and more dangerous round of thunderstorms will move into the area this evening ahead of an approaching cold front. These thunderstorms will present threats of large hail and damaging winds. While not likely, the National Weather Service is not ruling out an isolated tornado in our region.

The NWS has also issued a High Wind Watch from Thursday afternoon through Friday evening. Winds may become strong enough to cause at least isolated downed trees and power lines.

The Town of Tryon urges everyone to use caution during this period of severe weather and take precautions. For more information, you can visit the Greenville-Spartanburg office of the National Weather Service at www.weather.gov/gsp
