Good morning it is Thursday, February 22.

Most of the rain is out of the Heartland, this morning. Some lingering drizzle could stick around for most of the morning. We could even see freezing drizzle in our northwest counties.

We’re still watching for flooding concerns Friday night into Saturday. We could see severe weather Saturday afternoon and night. We could see hail, wind and have a slight chance of tornadoes.
