The two warnings followed each other back-to-back near Lowrys and McConnells in the 5 p.m. hour.
Both warnings were issued when the National Weather Service noticed severe thunderstorms with radar-indicated rotation.
While there was no immediate confirmation of tornados on the ground, images on social media indicated possible wall clouds, a common precursor to a tornado, in the atmosphere.
