Severe Weather Possible in Midwest Today

Overview of Severe Weather Threat

Hail Outlook

Tornado Outlook

Damaging Wind Outlook
The Storm Prediction Center has outlined parts of the Midwest for a slight risk of severe weather today.
The main threat today appears to be damaging wind and hail, but the tornado risk is somewhat elevated and may need to be watched.

This comes as a storm system moves eastward from the Plains and brings with it some warm and humid air. The extent and power of this air appears to be centered in Illinois, Missouri and Iowa.

Here's an image projecting the calibrated potential for a severe thunderstorm, valid around 6-7 pm CDT this evening. If we use this to determine the area of greatest risk, it is quite easy to see that the Illinois/Iowa border is at the greatest risk for severe weather today.
