5NEWS has implemented our Weather Alert Day protocol for severe thunderstorms that are expected to develop late Tuesday into the overnight hours.

A Weather Alert Day means we expect numerous severe thunderstorms with reports of storm damage.

There are two time-frames to keep a close eye on:

  • Tuesday Evening
    • Thunderstorms developing along a dryline
    • Supercells possible with tornado threat along with hail & damaging winds
    • Only a limited number of storms is expected
  • Tuesday Night
    • Numerous thunderstorms along the cold front
    • Damaging winds are expected
    • Isolated, brief tornadoes expected along the leading edge of the line

Storms will be largely over by Wednesday morning with breezy northwest winds arriving from the northwest.

Expect more frequent updates from 5NEWS on-air, social media, & throughout the day.
