The Storm Prediction Center has upgraded much of the area from a "slight" to "enhanced" risk for severe weather. What does that mean?
- SLIGHT- Scattered severe storms possible. Short lived and/or not widespread isolated intense storms possible. 1-2 tornadoes possible along with some reports of damaging winds and hail 1-2'' in diameter.
- ENHANCED - Numerous severe storms possible. More persistent and/or widespread, a few intense. A few tornadoes possible with several wind damage reports. Hail 1-2'' in diameter.
The following maps are an hour by hour look at simulated radar from the HRRR (High Resolution Rapid Refresh). Again, this will not be perfect, but it does give a good general idea.
While there will be hail, not everyone will see severe hail. HOWEVER, it would be appropriate to find some protection for your car or whatever can be damaged from large hail. You should have plenty of advance warning by watching radar today.
