2 PM Tuesday April 7
The Storm Prediction Center has upgraded the severe storm risk to Enhanced for Parts of the Mid West. The primary risk is for large hail and damaging winds. We are downstream of the wind flow, and may catch the remnant energy in parts of our region. It is possible some thunderstorm develop in this region that do not reach severe limits, but worth watching.
While this outlook is for today, our chance for storms will remain through Wednesday morning, then not strong line arriving on Thursday.

This beings with a ‘forecast’ for 2 PM from this morning. It does NOT match the radar above. That’s part of my point here.
The model is NOT perfect and already seems to be behind with this cell. So please consider that carrying forward. There may be more activity than shown, but the timing is to be used for a guideline.
