As feared, things have exploded the last hour. Let's run down each tornado watch.
The watch dead center in the country has a high risk of tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds as well as a "moderate" risk of violent tornadoes.
The next watch, to the north, is similar although there is a "high" risk of giant hail.
And, for the moment, the last tornado watch in effect, is for Colorado. The threat -- while significant -- is not quite as great.
