Today's Tornado Outlook: Heads Up Great Plains

A nighttime tornado threat exists Monday night. 
In this particular situation, there is little chance of tornadoes before 4pm and the threat might be later than that. 

The brown area has a significant risk of tornadoes. The yellow, hatched area has a significant threat of strong tornadoes. Here is a closeup of the higher threat areas.

The hail risk is considerable with any well-developed thunderstorm. 

The areas with hatching is where 2-3 inch hail may fall. Elsewhere, 1 to 2" hail is possible. The enhanced risk of large hail is in the red area with a significant risk elsewhere. 

Have at least three of these. For more on Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA), scroll down.

  1. It is unfortunate the NWS has yet another problem today: no satellite feed. Only those with a direct ground feed can get anything. NWS offices and those who get their feed via the NWS have NO satellite data. It goes without saying satellite data is vital on a day like today.

    1. Mike Smith here. Their radar network went down during the night with 80% of the radars unavailable.
