The SPC has placed our area under a HIGH risk for severe weather today and tonight.  At the present time the storms are lining up and getting their act together across the area.  There is one storm on the radar currently prompting a Tornado Warning and it looks like this cell will eventually move through Sumter County.  Here is a look at the thinking of the SPC…

Our area is inside the high risk hatch area.

It has been quite some time since I have seen the probability for tornadoes so high.  The last time we have this type of risk in our area was the day of the Enterprise Tornado.

Risk of Hail is likewise high.

Little doubt that we will have downed trees with severe wind risk of magnitude.
