Tornado Threat Today

The hatched area could see strong tornadoes later today. If you live in these areas please pay attention to the weather!


  1. Great. Omaha again in the cross hairs. At least it is a relatively small chance.

  2. Actually, 15% is a fairly large chance.

    The 15% refers to a tornado within 25 miles of any spot in the 15% area. Since tornadoes are infrequent, 15% is a fairly high number.

    The black hatching is areas that could experience an F-2 or greater intensity tornado.

  3. Even without tornadoes, doesn't that also mean more rain, and high straight-line winds that could push the Missouri over the top of levees?

  4. If I remember correctly, Joplin was in a 10% hatched area on May 22 so those probabilities are nothing to sneeze at.


  5. Yes, there is already serious flooding in some of these areas.
