Another round of severe weather predicted for WednesdayPosted Monday, May 11, 2009, at 2:13 PM
Update Tuesday @ 3 PM: The best chance for severe thunderstorms tomorrow has shifted north, from roughly Columbia, Missouri, northeast to Chicago. We're not out of the woods, but it doesn't look quite as bad now. The long range charts suggest we could see 4-5 inches of rain over the next week, however.
Original blog from Monday:
The Storm Prediction Center is already forecasting the possibility of more severe thunderstorms on Wednesday, particularly for the St. Louis area. Here's their outlook:
Southeast Missouri is only under a Slight Risk, but St. Louis falls within the Moderate Risk zone. It's somewhat unusual for them to project a Moderate Risk this far in advance.
Their bulletin says, "PARAMETERS ON FORECAST SOUNDINGS SUGGEST THE ENVIRONMENT WILL BE FAVORABLE FOR A SIGNIFICANT SEVERE WEATHER EVENT WITH A STRONGLY FORCED LINE OF INTENSE STORMS."
