Just a heads up for those of us in the midwest.
A bit of a nasty storm building so just keep your eyes and ears open.





The main threat of severe storms through Wednesday evening will be along a cold front in the lower and middle-Mississippi Valleys. Damaging winds are the primary concern, but a few tornadoes are also possible.

I agree with this. It was quite windy out here this morning, coming from the west, and that usually means there is a strong low to the east that is pulling the air towards it. It's not as bad as it can get in the spring, but it was breezy enough that I can totally see a problem with the weather later this evening for the areas shown in red.

Thanks for posting this head's up for our friends in the danger zone.

Just saw the tornado warnings on the news after I read your post! Didn't realize I was in the red area, eek! Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully it'll pass without anything serious!

Just keep an eye on your local weather is all I ask.
I have seen how things can turn out unexpectedly .

We had a town just north of me by 15 miles that got it pretty bad last spring.

I know how we get wrapped up in things and forget about the real world that is happening.

Peace,

Thank you, I am now. Your newest map puts me right under the red again, so now I have my weather channel on, (which I should have already!) They are saying chances of major power outages so to charge our phones, big wall clouds, and 'rain wraps' they think could turn into tornados. What is a rain wrap? They say they have confirmed rotation but it's just a severe thunderstorm, no funnel yet. I thank you again because I missed all the first warnings earlier napping though them and wouldn't have known to look if it weren't for your thread!!
Please be safe where you are as well Kdog!

The rain wraps are small,hidden tornadoes that rip the roof off your house and leave everyone else unscathed.

Please,be safe and aware,Katharos62191.
