Forecast for severe weather expands in the east

Yesterday, we discussed the prospects of a significant severe weather outbreak later this week, and as it approaches, we can see that the SPC expects that the scope of this storm is quite large. Here is the current outlook for tomorrow and Wednesday, respectively

The SPC isn’t going to break this down quite yet, but I can tell you that the primary concern, initially, will be tornadoes and large hail, especially within the western half of the enhanced risk area.

Yesterday, we discussed the orientation of the system, with a secondary area of low pressure developing at the base of the upper level trough. It does not appear that that is going to happen, otherwise that would kick this storm from bad to worse.

As always, keep a close eye on your local meteorologists, and keep tabs on the weather!
