On Sunday the entire News 5 area is included in an enhanced risk for severe weather. That’s level 3 of 5 on the severe scale and means that some severe weather is likely. Thunderstorms Sunday afternoon and Sunday night will be capable of damaging winds, large hail, heavy downpours, and a few tornadoes can’t be ruled out. Make sure you stay tuned and have a safety plan. You can follow the latest updates in the weather section on WKRG.COM.
