Severe Outlook

Severe storms in the forecast today from Dodge City, Kansas to Syracuse, New York.  We have already seen some morning showers and storms for a lot of these areas, but the intensity will be likely going up by the afternoon and evening.

Severe Risks

Large hail, tornadoes and damaging winds will all be possible today, so you will want to pay close attention to the forecast if you have any outdoor activities.
