Severe Risk Monday – WednesdayMay 31st, 2014 at 11:42 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
These are the SPC Severe Weather Risk Areas for today, tomorrow, Tuesday and on the right, days 4 (Weds.). We are in the General (green color) thunderstorm outlook for Sunday night and Monday. As I write this, Monday has a “See Text” in over N. Illinois and strong storms are expected just to the south of Michigan over the Tues./Weds. period. (click the links to read the discussions for each day). The Storm Prediction Center is most concerned about the Tues. PM to Weds. PM storms that are expected across IL-IN-OH (remember I’ve talked about a dominant storm track just south of Michigan). SPC says (for Tues./Weds.): “LARGE HAIL AND WIDESPREAD DAMAGING WIND WILL BE POSSIBLE ALONG WITH POTENTIAL FOR A FEW TORNADOES.” We’ll have to keep an eye on Monday PM to see if there is an area of clearing, where it heats up and we create enough instability for some (marginal?) severe cells in the S. Great Lakes.
