These are the SPC Severe Weather Risk Areas for today (Tues.)his PM and Wednesday. We are in the General (green color) thunderstorm outlook for Sunday night and Monday. It was a close call for severe in Lower Michigan Monday PM – we had lots of gusts to 40-55 mph. 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). You can see a large “Moderate Risk” tomorrow from Nebraska to Illinois. SPC says (for Tues./Weds.): “POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR SIGNIFICANT SEVERE EVENTS TUESDAY WITH A THREAT FOR VERY LARGE HAIL…TORNADOES AND WIDESPREAD DAMAGING WIND.” The morning run of the NAM model keeps Michigan in the “cold” air with significant overrunning rain and the severe storms across IL/IN/OH.
