Tornado and Severe Thunderstorm Risk Today

Unfortunately, the forecasts of a big severe weather day for today look like they are going to be correct.

Here is the tornado risk:
Five percent (brown) is the significant risk threshold. Where you see the hatching, violent tornadoes are possible.

There is a large area of damaging winds forecast:
In this case, 15% (yellow) is the significant threshold. The hatched area is where wind gusts of 75 mph or stronger are forecast.

So, this is certainly a day to keep up on the weather if you live in these areas.

One line of strong storms with high winds is moving through the Midwest as of 8:45am.
There are already major delays at O'Hare and Midway.

I will not be live-blogging the storms but will post periodic updates.
