A statewide tornado drill is set for 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. All Illinois Weather Service offices will send a "test" tornado warning at that time to local news media and others. Officials plan the test every year on the first Tuesday of March to verify that warning systems such as the Emergency Alert System, law enforcement systems and weather alert radios are working properly.

It also is done so that some communities can conduct an outdoor siren test.
