A First Alert Action Day for Wednesday, Nov. 11 has been CANCELED.

The latest from KFVS First Alert Chief Meteorologist Grant Dade. Click here to watch Grant's explanation.

Conditions for severe weather continue to look weaker. After having a chance to look over all the latest model data, it is clear the models over estimated the amount of surface moisture available. This means 90 percent of the storms will likely be torn apart. The odds of isolated tornadoes is now very low. The odds of 70 MPH is lower as well. I do think we still could see an isolated severe thunderstorm warning but the overall odds of damaging and life-threatening weather is too low to justify a First Alert Action Day.

There will be tornadoes with this system but they will be well to the north of the Heartland.
