Severe Weather Possible Today

The National Weather Service in Springfield notes that severe weather is possible today, but the probability is low. If severe weather develops, the following risks exist:
  • Significant flooding risk
  • Limited tornado risk
  • Limited thunderstorm wind damage risk
  • Significant lighting risk
  • Limited non thunderstorm wind risk
Periods of heavy rain are expected today and tonight, with an additional one to three inches today. Isolated severe storms with the above risks are possible, but due to limited instability the probability is low.


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.
