Tornado and Severe Thunderstorm Threats

The NWS Storm Prediction Center's outlook for this afternoon and evening shows the better chance of very large hail and damaging winds. The hatching means that there is a chance of hail 2" in diameter. The significant threshold is 15% (yellow) with the higher risk in northern Kansas and southern Nebraska.

The SPC's tornado outlook is 5% (the significant threshold for tornadoes).
I personally believe the greater chance of a tornado or two is in the southern part of the tornado outlook. So, please pay attention to the weather if thunderstorms approach.

For Tuesday and Tuesday night, there is a good chance of a tornado outbreak along with hail and wind storms.
The hatched lines indicate areas where violent tornadoes may occur.

  1. It's a bit scary that we are forecasted for such a violent outbreak here on the 25th Anniversary..?
