Severe Risk This WeekendJuly 11th, 2014 at 1:28 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
These are the Risk areas from the Storm Prediction Center. Today we’ll be dry and pleasant. We’ll have a chance of showers and storms over the weekend into early next week. Here’s the SPC severe weather discussions for today, tomorrow and Tuesday. As I write this (10:10 am Fri.), the risk for Saturday (evening/night) is basically along and south of I-94. SPC says: “SEVERE HAIL/WIND POTENTIAL DEVELOPING EAST FROM THE MO RIVER VALLEY TO THE MS RIVER THROUGH THE EVENING. SOME OF THESE STORMS MAY PERSIST EAST INTO LOWER MI”. For Sunday the Slight Risk area as I write this is south of us in IN and OH.
