Tornado Threat Upgraded

When it comes to tornado forecasts of this nature, 5% is the significant threshold (5% chance of tornado within 25 mi. of any given point). Fifteen percent is a very significant threat.

Today's tornadoes, however, are likely to be relatively short-lived and difficult to warm of. In a situation like this, I recommend you keep your children nearby and be ready to move to shelter quickly if a warning is issued or if a thunderstorm moves in and things "don't feel right." Yes, you read that last phrase correctly. There is certainly a role for common sense in situations like this.
