Severe Storms Likely - Tuesday 4/19/11

The Storm Prediction Center shows much of the Ozarks in a moderate risk box for severe weather. Basically areas south and east of I-44. The local National Weather Service is forecasting the following risks for our area today:

  • Hail and T-Storm Wind Gusts - Elevated to Significant Risk
  • Tornadoes - Limited to Elevated Risk
  • Non T-Storm Wind Gusts - Limited
Storms should be in the Joplin area in the early afternoon hours and the Springfield area in the late afternoon hours. However, you should monitor local media for updated information and specific information for your area.

You should stay tuned to local weather forecasts. Make sure your NOAA All Hazards Radio is on and backed up by battery. If you don't own a NOAA All Hazards Radio, you should. Click the link for a previous blog post on selecting one.
