Today's Tornado and Severe Thunderstorm Forecast

It has already been a very busy day with a tornado that moved across the Atlanta metro area (scroll down for map of damage path). 

Here is the updated forecast from now until 7am.  

Tornado Forecast

There is an enhanced risk of strong tornadoes in the yellow hatched area. This is the area I have been concerned about since Friday. I would closely monitor the weather in southeast Oklahoma and north central Texas after 3pm. I would include all of the DFW Metroplex north of I-20 in the enhanced area.

There is a significant risk of tornadoes in the brown areas. 

Damaging Wind Forecast

In the hatched area, thunderstorm-generated wind gusts may exceed 75 mph. Please be prepared for power failures and trade damage. This includes the DFW Metroplex, Little Rock and Ft. Smith. The yellow areas will experience more scattered thunderstorms will gusts to around 60 mph. 

Giant Hail Forecast

The hatched area -- especially in the red tinting (which, again, includes the DFW area) -- is where giant hail of more than two inches in diameter is forecasted to fall. Be sure to put your car in the garage or under the carport!

I will provide additional coverage on Twitter @usweatherexpert. Please follow me there.
