Tornado Risk 

Yellow hatched is an enhanced risk of strong tornadoes. The brown is a significant risk. We already have had a tornado warning issued this morning in Illinois. I urge you to monitor the weather today if you live in these areas.

Giant Hail Risk

The hatched area is where hail 2" or larger is forecast to fall. The red color means there is an enhanced risk of giant hail and yellow means there is a significant risk. 

Of course, I will update later today and will have storm warnings and other information on Twitter @usweatherexpert.
