FYIJust got off phone with NWS on tonight's weather. Still looking at severe weather happening overnight. This system will start in western SD and move east so we should be able to watch the storms come our way. For the Brown County area very strong winds look to be the main threat, hail and tornados are also possible. Please make sure your weather radio is turned on and read to go. This will be a late night issue so having a way to wake you is critical. The Brown County Courthouse annex will be open for a storm shelter if needed. Use entrance on Market St.Remember the timing shown on the picture below are approx. Stay Safe Friends ...
