Severe Weather Possibilities – updateOctober 2nd, 2013 at 11:54 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
These are the Fri Night/Sat., and Sun., severe weather outlooks from the Storm Prediction Center. The green areas on maps indicate general thunderstorm areas. The yellow areas are Slight Risk Areas. The Slight Risk for today (Sat.) includes western Muskegon, most of Ottawa, far SW Kent, SW Barry, far western sections of Calhoun and Branch Counties and all of Allegan, Van Buren, Kalamazoo, Berrien, Cass and St. Joseph Counties. For Day 3, Saturday, SPC says: “…THE OVERALL PRIMARY RISK SHOULD BE DAMAGING WINDS…ALTHOUGH SOME HAIL MAY BE POSSIBLE AS WELL. GIVEN RELATIVELY HIGH BOUNDARY LAYER MOISTURE CONTENT AND SUFFICIENTLY STRONG LOW LEVEL SHEAR/SRH…A TORNADO OR TWO MIGHT BE POSSIBLE AS WELL.
Storm Team 8 will be tracking the system. Check the blog for updates from me and the astute, knowledgeable commentators who fortunately for me occasionally lurk here in my little corner of cyberspace.
