ILLINOIS (RFD) — The National Weather Service wants you to be aware of the potential for severe weather by Tuesday evening. Potentially severe storms with a chance of tornadoes are being forecast as a front approaches parts of Illinois late in the day, so you need to be aware of changing weather conditions. WeatherSpotter Training Coordinator John Nell says the more advance warning you have when the weather turns severe, the more prepared you can be, so now is the time to either create or assess your plan when severe weather strikes.
Nell reminds there are a number of different ways to receive weather warnings, including through a weather radio, notifications on your smart phone, and local radio station. In some participating counties, you can download the the Code Red app for your phone.
