"The outdoor warning system in Dane County is fully automated", explained Dave Janda, the assistant director of Dane County Emergency Management Services. "The prime time for this in our viewing area will be between 5 to 7 p.m. on the early end until midnight or 1 a.m". It will be issued as a test of family preparedness in the home and for second shift workers.

Rain and thunderstorms are predicted to begin in the Meridian region around 1 a.m. Saturday, with the worst of the storm passing through between 6 a.m. and midnight Saturday.
