The National Weather Service is forecasting a strong frontal system will approach the region Sunday afternoon and will cross the area Monday, April 16.
At South Mountain Elementary School in Wausau, students were put through the annual drill to make sure they're prepared in case the real call ever comes. All modes of severe weather will be possible, including the threat of potentially strong and long track tornadoes.
On Sunday morning, the Storm Prediction Center elevated the threat to "enhanced" for most of SC, which means the threat of numerous widespread severe storms are possible as a strong cold front moves in. There is also an evening mock tornado warning to be issued at 6:45 pm.

Fire/rescue officials in Baton Rouge reported a tree fallen on a home near Oneal Road and Antioch Road, the result of thunderstorm wind damage, at 8:05 a.m. "One thing people can do it take advantage of those options and have more than one method of getting emergency information".
A tornado watch has been issued for the western portion of the state, and WRAL meteorologist Mike Moss said there is a potential for that watch to extend eastward later this afternoon.
It hardly feels like spring - what with a winter storm in the offing for the weekend - but the National Weather Service wants folks to think about tornadoes. "We know that under our coat hooks is the safest place for the students". Dane County has 136 sirens.
The Live 5 First Alert Weather team declared Sunday a First Alert Weather Day because of the possibility of severe weather.
