Storms Possible Wednesday

As if we need more storms in the area, it looks like Wednesday good be an active day.

The Storm Prediction Center put up their Day 3 Outlook that includes southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, western Kentucky, northwest Tennessee, and northeast Arkansas. The areas mentioned are under the "Slight Risk". There is a large area already highlighted by the SPC for a "Moderate Risk". This is something that doesn't happen to often on a Day 3 Outllook. Immediately, that catches my attention.

The Day 3 Outllook covers the time period from 7am Wednesday through 7am Thursday.

Since SPC is really pushing the severe weather threat, I thought I would include the probabilities forecast that they issue.

Note the blue hatched area. That area means there is a 10% or greater probability of significant severe weather within 25 miles of any point.

As of now, I am planning on going out storm chasing Wednesday. You will be able to ride along with me as I will be streaming a camera from the car to the internet.

Stay tuned for more updates over the next couple of days.
