Tornado and Damaging Wind Situation
On this map, 15% (yellow) is the significant threshold for large hail, damaging winds or a tornado. This particular forecast has probabilities up to 30% (red) and an area (hatched) where highly damaging winds (gusts of 75 mph or higher) or a violent tornado could occur.
If you are in the hatched area, you may wish to make preliminary plans in case power should be cut off in your area. In any case, please plan on monitoring the local weather tomorrow.
