Severe weather risk today identified

Those in southeast Missouri, southern Illinois and western Kentucky should keep an eye on the weather late afternoon through evening. Suspect a Tornado Watch will be issued.

Latest data suggests the greatest risk for severe weather today will be in southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, western Kentucky and southwest Indiana.  I'm looking at a window between 2pm CDT and 9pm CDT.

While damaging wind and large hail remain a threat from thunderstorms, there is also the potential for a few tornadoes in the highlighted area - some of which could be strong.

I suspect the Storm Prediction Center will issue a Tornado Watch this afternoon for part of the highlighted area.
