This Week’s Hazards

A marginal risk for severe weather has been highlighted over our area for this afternoon and evening. This is the lowest of the five severe-weather risk categories. I’ll keep a close eye on this. The main threat would be a damaging straight-line wind gust, though an isoalted tornado can’t be ruled out.
