Couple of quick points to make this morning about the weather situation … with a full update later this afternoon.
- The SPC has placed the western half of the viewing area in a Moderate Risk for severe weather… the primary threat is damaging wind gusts of 60-80 mph.
- Related note – SPC has a 5% tornado probability for our area. I DO think we see tornado warnings tonight because storms will be rotating. However, IF we do not see temperatures warm above 55 or 57 degrees our tornado threat is greatly lessened. More on this later.
- High-resolution models still indicate a powerful line of storms moving eastward between 12AM and 5AM in the viewing area.
