MM’s Severe Wx Concerns for the Week 

Showers and thundershowers are expected areawide Tuesday afternoon and evening. At this time, severe storms are not expected across the plateau. The Storm Prediction Center does not have our area outlined in any risk for that day at this time.

The Storm Prediction Center continues to highlight our entire area in the risk for severe storms on Wednesday. In fact, that risk continues to increase. All modes of severe weather appear possible. I’ll keep a close eye on this.

The threat continues to increase.

The Storm Prediction Center has our entire area outlined in the slight risk for severe weather, with the enhanced risk coming right up to the southern border of Cumberland County (too close for comfort).
