Get ready for a round of severe weather.

A storm system will bring scattered severe thunderstorms with torrential downpours, hail and damaging wind gusts that could cause power outages. 

The National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center has placed the entire forecast area at a threat level ranging from marginal to enhanced (a higher probability of seeing severe thunderstorms). To see the threat levels by area, see the first image above.

The primary threats will be damaging winds as high as 60 to 70 mph and large hail of one inch in diameter or larger. Isolated tornadoes are also possible, according to the National Weather Service.

The strong thunderstorms will arrive in the evening Friday, May 15 after nightfall.

The system will move off by around 1 a.m. Saturday, May 16. It will become mostly sunny Saturday, which will be continued warm, with a high temperature in the low 70s.
