This morning’s weather data is lending increased confidence to a risk for isolated severe thunderstorms later this afternoon and evening. Damaging straight-line winds will be the main concern, though isolated tornadoes are not out of the question. NWS will have an even better idea once our morning weather balloon is away.
Stay weather-aware this afternoon and be on the lookout for potential severe weather watches or warnings if they are required (gut feeling is that we could be put under a watch at some point later this morning or in the early afternoon).
Remember, social media is great, but should be a supplement to a balanced severe weather information diet. NOAA Weather Radio and these additional tools will help keep you in the loop on this and any other severe weather day.
