The Storm Prediction Center says there’s now a risk of severe weather in the Attractions area Friday night thanks to Tropical Storm Nestor firing up some convection, paired with an approaching warm front. The threat carries over into Saturday as the core of Nestor passes well to the north, but the general sloppiness and poor organization of the storm causes potentially widespread rain.
So far, no tornado watches or severe thunderstorm watches have been issued.
