Severe Storm Threat Thursday


Two rounds of strong, potentially severe storms will be possible Thursday as a particularly vigorous low pressure system heads from the Central Plains to the Upper Midwest. Storms traveling across Missouri and Arkansas late Wednesday night will enter the Local 6 area before sunrise. Most of these storms will remain below severe limits but could prompt a few warnings before exiting the area by 9 AM.

The most concerning time period for severe storms with a tornado risk arrives after noon and we expect a line of storms to develop over Southern Illinois extending south into Kentucky and Tennessee. They will move east by 6-7 PM. Given the expected nature of this bigger storm system, widespread severe storms will be likely if we get any sunshine after the morning round of storms passes. Here are a few graphics detailing the risks and Storm Prediction Center outlooks for severe storms...
