Tuesday's Severe Weather Threat
Here is the NWS Storm Prediction Center's outlook for severe thunderstorms and tornadoes (15%, yellow is the significant threshold) for Tuesday and Tuesday night. The hatched area is where the greatest threat -- especially for tornadoes and very large hail -- exists. You can see that it lines up reasonably well with the tornado forecast as I see it (scroll down).
For residents of the hatched area, I recommend making sure your weather radio has fresh batteries and that you be aware of the risk so you can plan for your children or infirm friends or relatives.
