Severe Weather Threat for 11/29/22
There is a severe weather threat for much of the Mid-south and lower to mid Mississippi Valley. We are on the very northern fringe of the threat for severe weather, but are still in a Marginal to Slight Risk (level 1-2 on a scale of 5) for severe storms. You can track the radar on our website here—–> www.kbsi23.com/weather/
The threat for a tornado outbreak does exist to our south, especially in the Mississippi area where a Moderate and Enhanced Risk exists. For us, a few isolated tornadoes are possible.
Again, we are on the northern fringe of this severe weather threat, and we are also on the northern fringe of the tornado threat. The 5% potential (see below) means that there is a small chance for a tornado within any 25 mile radius. That sounds small, but this potential usually means we see 1-2 isolated tornadoes at least somewhere in the 5% shaded area.
As is usually the case with severe weather, we also have a wind and hail potential. Storms that can form will have the potential for hail in excess of 1″ and wind in excess of 57 mph.
