Above is the latest severe weather outlook issued by the SPC for today. Another rarely issued "High Risk" of tornadoes and severe storms is forecast within the area shaded in pink. The area shaded in red has an enhanced risk of severe storms & tornadoes as well. Some of the tornadoes that take place within the red and pink shaded areas could be long tracked and very damaging.
Elsewhere...severe thunderstorms are possible anywhere within the yellow shaded areas, covering a large part of the Eastern third of the country.
Severe storms have continued overnight, just as we expected yesterday, and the following watches (red = Tornado Watch, blue = Severe Thunderstorm Watch) are currently in effect:
If you live in the areas currently under a watch, and if you live anywhere in the red and pink shaded areas on the severe weather outlook image at the top of the post, please pay very close attention to the weather today. Review severe weather safety plans and be prepared to seek shelter if threatening weather approaches your area.
Please check the blue "SPC" link in the first paragraph for any updates to the severe weather outlook & watches between my blog posts today, as I will not be able to keep a constant eye on things (especially this morning).
