Well, I'd like to say that today has certainly lived up to my expectations. A High Risk of severe weather has been issued, with this risk containing the possibility for several strong, long track tornadoes also included in this risk.
The High Risk includes parts of KS and OK, where the SPC specifically says "...A tornado outbreak is likely across parts of the southern and central Plains today and tonight...", which is of particular concern considering the amount of highly populated areas within this risk area. Within the High Risk area, there is a High Risk (30%) chance for tornadoes, a Moderate Risk (30%) for severe wind gusts, and a High Risk (45%) for large or very large hail.
It is worth noting that several long track,potentially violent (EF4+) tornadoes are possible, and those in the affected areas should stay alert at all times for rapidly changing conditions. Our Discord channel will be posting warnings as they come in, so do feel free to join via the invite link on the homepage.
Areas under the Moderate are the ares immediately surrounding the High Risk area, followed by the usual Enhanced, Slight and Marginal areas.
This post will get updated again at 13Z, which is the next scheduled SPC Day 1 Outlook time. Once again, for up to date warnings, please follow the linkto our Discord channel that is on the homepage, and if you are in the risk areas, stay alert and safe.
