(Memphis) The National Weather Service in Memphis says it’s weather radios are working again.

Earlier a warning was sent saying, “A significant hardware failure has resulted in all NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts… off air for the entire region.”  That problem has now been solved.

This is a particularly bad time for any issues as we are expecting severe weather in the area.

The weather service’s Storm Prediction Center says there is a moderate risk for severe weather in the Mid-South tonight, including the threat of high winds and possible tornadoes.

During the day today, temperatures will again reach the lower 70′s under most cloudy skies.

The severe weather threat becomes the focus on late tonight with storms expected to make their way into the News Channel 3 viewing area late this evening.

One to two inches of rain is possible tonight through.

Temperatures will be falling for the rest of the week.
