People will see the "slight" risk of severe thunderstorms on their televisions today. Here is the 8am CDT outlook from the NWS Storm Prediction Center. Often, a "slight" (I would prefer they use the word "elevated") risk means tornadoes are possible.
But, if we go inside today's numbers, the tornado risk is pretty low.
But, there is a risk of large hail and damaging winds. Those maps are below.
|Probability of thunderstorm generated winds of 58 mph or more|
|Probability of hail 1" in diameter. In the hatched area, 2" or larger is possible.|
While I'll post another update or two, I am not planning on liveblogging this situation.
