Severe Storms Monday

The Storm Prediction Center has included all of southeast Missouri, northern Arkansas, most of Illinois, and most of Indiana in a "Slight Risk" for severe weather 7am Monday through 7am Tuesday.

SPC is looking for individual storms to begin firing up by mid-afternoon and eventually the storms to become more linear (or a line) and move southeast by late Monday night.

The main threat is damaging wind and large hail, but a couple isolated tornadoes can't be ruled out in the individual/discreet storms.

If I can get the boss to buy in to it, I might go out chasing Monday. It isn't a great chase day, but it would be nice to get a few storms under our belts. Plus, I have got some new technology put together that will allow you to see exactly where I am located while I am driving.

Once again, sorry about the lack of posts lately. Between being on vacation, work pulling in a few different directions, Twitter, and relatively quiet weather I haven't had much of a chance to update things on "New at Dis Hour."


I would personally advise against chasing on Monday. If a supercell does manage to get going, it will probably morph into a multi cell rather quickly. Any tornadoes will probably be very brief and form in Central IL, unless an OFB sets up in this area.
