HEADS UP: Tornado and Flood Risk Later Today and Tomorrow

I'm sorry to report that we have a tornado risk later tonight and an even more serious tornado risk tomorrow (January 1).  There is also a serious flood risk due to heavy rains in an area with saturated soils. 

The area in brown has a significant risk of tornadoes between midnight and 6am Thursday. It will be important to have a method for receiving a tornado warning that will awaken you during the night in case a tornado warning is issued. 

Saturday and Saturday Night
Unfortunately, it looks like a we will have a tornado outbreak -- including strong tornadoes. The hatched area is where strong tornadoes are forecasted to occur. 

The yellow area has an enhanced risk of tornadoes.  
The brown area has a significant risk of tornadoes. 

Serious Flood Risk
There is a serious risk of heavy rains and serious flooding in the green-shaded areas. Please monitor the weather in these areas and think about what you would do to if flooding develops in your area. 

Keep in mind that it is never a good idea to drive or walk through flooded areas.
