SEVERE WEATHER – SATURDAY MORNING
Friday Night [midnight – 5:00 am]: Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms mainly for northwestern portions of the viewing area.
Saturday Morning [5:00 am – noon]: Thunderstorm activity increases in coverage with the main line of thunderstorms arriving mid-morning.
All modes of severe weather are possible for this event – long-tracked tornadoes, damaging winds (greater than 70 mph), large hail and heavy downpours. Far northwest portions of the viewing area sit under an Enhanced Risk [3 out of 5] before 6:00 am on Saturday. The threat shifts to the east after 6:00 am. At that point, the entire viewing area will sit under an Enhanced Risk [3 out of 5]. The SPC has also placed us under a “hatched” area for Saturday morning. Which means, there is a 10% chance for tornadoes to reach EF-2 strength or greater, hail to top 2″ in diameter, and winds to exceed 75 mph. The concern for severe weather will last until early afternoon on Saturday.
