The National Weather Service in Paducah says the region could see severe weather Saturday afternoon and evening.  NWS Meteorologist Chris Noles says southern Illinois, western Kentucky, and a small portion of northwest Tennessee will likely see severe thunderstorms that could develop into more hazardous weather. 

"Any storms that form mid-day Saturday," Noles says, "on through the afternoon will be capable of producing very large hail, damaging winds and possibly tornadoes as the environment does appear as if it will be favorable for supercell thunderstorms."
