Strong to severe storms are expected to develop this evening in the Ozarks.  The Storm Prediction Center has a slight risk box covering the bottom half of MO, through AR and down to the Gulf of Mexico.  The National Weather Service office in Springfield, MO list the threats to include:
  • Limited tornado risk
  • Elevated thunderstorm wind damage risk
  • Significant lightning risk

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.

Tornado Watch - SE MO and parts of IL, AR, KY and TN

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Tornado Watch for SE MO, and parts of AR, IL, KY and TN until 9PM CT.  We are very close to breaking a new record for the longest period of time between deadly tornadoes, I hope people are paying attention, and we can break that record.  Arkansas already has tornado warnings issued at the time of this article.

Probability Of Slight, Moderate and High Risk

Hey there folks, it's been a while.  Thankfully 2012 has been a pretty quiet severe weather year for the most part.  With many of our severe weather posts, you'll see us make note of the Storm Prediction Center risk box, which is part of their Convective Outlook forecast.  In this article at Tornado Titans, they have written about the daily risk probability videos put together by Patrick Marsh.

It's pretty interesting stuff for a weather weenie.
