The statewide tornado drill scheduled for tomorrow as part of Severe Weather Awareness Week has been postponed to Thursday.

The National Weather Service says the Federal Communications Commission has not granted a waiver to allow the test to proceed. Also many of the state’s local emergency management officials have told the Weather Service they cannot sound their sirens while temperatures are below freezing, as they are predicted to be tomorrow.

The test is now scheduled to happen Thursday at 1:30 p.m.
