Forecaster Evie: Heads Up This Week!

After collecting hailstone-size Easter eggs, Forecaster Evie turned her eyes to the sky and you should, too. It looks like the first major week of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms of 2015.

This graphic is from the SPC and 15% is the significant threshold. The hatched area is where very large hail (including egg-sized!), very high winds and tornadoes are more likely.

The second graphic is for Thursday and Thursday night. The red area is a concentrated threat.
So, take this time in the interim to make sure you have two methods for getting warnings (TV+weather radio+plus cell phone app+portable radio, etc.) and fresh batteries for a radio, flashlight, etc.
