Friday featured the first Severe Thunderstorm Watch of 2017 and two rare winter Severe Thunderstorm Warnings. Many downpours and storms featured hail, even though they were sub-severe. This is common with cold-season storms.

Storm Team 8 was live during the event. The last time a Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued during a winter month was almost 10 years ago in January of 2008.
