Sunday’s Severe Storms and Tornadoes

5 Nov 2017, 2:27 pm

Sunday’s severe thunderstorm pack a punch with tornadoes, large hail and strong winds.  The severe set up for the Midwest United States is something not that uncommon for the fall season in this part of the country.  

The cold front is the leading edge of some much cooler air that will collide with the warmth and the moisture that is in places across the Midwest. High pressure across the southeast is pumping moisture and some very warm temperatures. Also in the upper levels of the atmosphere, winds will be strong to aid in the development of severe storms.

An enhanced risk for severe thunderstorms from eastern Missouri through Ohio continues Sunday and Sunday night.  

An enhanced risk of severe weather brings numerous severe thunderstorms possibly producing a few tornadoes, damaging winds and hail in excess of 2”.

Numerous storm reports from across the area from tornadoes have been posted for Indiana and Ohio.

 

Flash flooding with heavy rain is also a concern for many areas impacted by Sunday’s severe weather.

In the area of concern today storms will remain robust and strong with possible severe impacts though the evening and tonight.  Have a method to receive severe weather warnings for your area in place.
