The weather service's outlook shows the enhanced risk of severe weather extending into much of North Carolina.

Clear conditions return Sunday, but temperatures will be cool behind the storm with a range of 38-61 forecast for Meridian on Sunday.

Showers and thunderstorms in advance of the cold front are expected to reach the Rock Hill area by early afternoon, with the worst of the weather predicted for the mid and late-afternoon hours.

Rain, snow, sleet and "all precipitation types" are likely with the storm that also is poised to deliver strong winds and blizzard conditions, the National Weather Service said.

Djukanovic claims to have won presidential election in Montenegro
The vote Sunday may be the first due to the fact the Western military alliance was combined by Montenegro in December. He led Montenegro to independence from much larger Serbia in 2006 and later into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation .

With the storms comes a chance for wind damage, quarter-sized hail, localized downpours that could produce flash flooding in a few spots and isolated, brief tornadoes.

Besides the obvious refresher, another reason for the tests is because it allows the public to test their weather radios, which can only be activated using a real tornado warning code. A warning means that action is required because of immediate threats.

A storm system moving south from the NY border will bring moist air in by early Sunday, said DeVoir.

The tornado watch covers areas south of Interstate 64 and west of Interstate 95, including metro Richmond, South Hill, Famville, Dinwiddie, Goochland, Crewe and Lawrenceville.

Although thunderstorms are possible Monday morning into Monday Afternoon, they are not expected to be severe at this time, the forecast said.

The possibility of tornadoes or hail are listed as low, but with the enhanced risk, isolated tornadoes can not be ruled out.

"Unfortunately we are still pretty far in advance of the events and details are limited", James Carpenter, meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said Saturday morning. Check back for updates.
