Moderate Risk for Severe WX - Thursday 6/7/07

The slight risk box has been updated to a moderate risk box. Tornado possibility is now in the forecast. Myself and Jeff Kerr (KC0VGC) plan on heading to the Joplin area at 5pm to stage for a possible event. If it looks like it will be here well after dark, we may stay local. The NWS is doing a live briefing at 3:05 PM to prepare for this threat.

If things go the way the appear to be going, the Springfield area will likely be under a Tornado Watch by this eveneing.

Possible Severe Wx on Thursday and Friday

It looks like things are setting up for severe weather late in the week. This far out, that could certainly change. As of 10:00 am on Monday, June 4, there is a moderate risk on the Day 3 outlook up in Nebraska and South Dakota. It's not often that a moderate risk is predicted 3 days out.
