Severe Thunderstorms Sunday

Looking over weather data for tomorrow evening. The potential exists for severe thunderstorms Sunday across southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, western Kentucky, northwest Tennessee, northeast Arkansas and southern Indiana.

The Storm Prediction Center has the area below shaded in yellow for a "Slight Risk" for seeing severe thunderstorms.

I wouldn't be surprised to see SPC upgrade parts of the "Slight Risk" to a "Moderate Risk" when their new forecasts come out tomorrow.

The best window of opportunity for severe storms appears to be from 5pm - 10pm for the KFVS viewing area.

Now is a good time to review your severe weather plan. What do you do if a Severe Thunderstorm Warning is issued? What do you do if a Tornado Warning is issued? Is your NOAA Weather Radio turned on? Do the batteries need replaced? It's always better to think about these things ahead of time instead of afterwards.
