Today's Tornado and Severe Thunderstorm Threat

There is one small area where there is a significant (5%) tornado threat. It includes Wichita, Kansas City, Joplin and Topeka.

There are multiple areas where a significant (15%) threat of damaging winds exists. Note this includes the airports of NYC, Philly, D.C. and BWI, Chicago and Milwaukee and Atlanta. Could be another bad day for air travel. There are no weather delays anywhere in the U.S. at the moment.

Finally, there are three areas where large (≥1") hail are possible (15% significant threat). The hatched area is where ≥2 inch hail is forecast.
If you live in these areas, please keep up on the weather today.

Remember, I'm at the American Meteorological Society meeting (see below) so am not able to routinely update the blog today. You can follow my tweets about the meeting @usweatherexpert or all of the tweets about the meeting by following #ams13.
