Severe Weather/Tornadoes Expected Tuesday 4/19/11

The Storm Prediction Center has most of MO in a Moderate Risk box tomorrow. Family and friends in IL are also in this risk box. This is a good indication that severe weather will occur. The local NWS office is using strong language regarding the situation tomorrow:

"An episode of severe storms will occur Tuesday afternoon through Tuesday night." They list the risks as:
  • Baseball sized hail
  • Wind gusts of 70 MPH
  • Tornadoes
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.

The threat looks much more likely for straight line winds that get quite gusty. I would say the probabilities for tornadoes will be greatest east of the Highway 65 corridor.
