Heads Up This Weekend

We don't usually think of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in the same month as Thanksgiving but they are possible this weekend.

These are the probabilities of a tornado or a severe thunderstorm (defined at having hail 1" in diameter, wind gusts of 58 mph or higher or both) within 25 mi. of your location. Generally speaking, 15% is the "significant" threat threshold. A concern is that college football games will be going on when thunderstorms are occurring.

While the absolute probabilities are as high, this is a relatively large area for this type of forecast in this time of year.

If you live in these areas, pay attention to the weather. 

If you have tickets to a college game Saturday, make sure you have some way of monitoring the weather and exit the stadium for better shelter in plenty of time before thunderstorms arrive.
