It's not over

Posted Friday, April 15, 2011, at 1:51 PM

After last night's storms, it may have seemed safe to assume that the ugly weather was over for awhile. No, that was only the first round. We're about to see Round 2.

A Tornado Watch is in effect until 9 PM as another line of storms are expected to roll through. Projections from the Storm Prediction Center show that we have nearly a 10% chance of seeing a tornado within 25 miles of here.

As I write this at 1:45 PM, storms have just started to fire over the Ozarks near Reynolds County. These storms will continue to expand in size and strength as they pinwheel in our direction. The weather service is advising that the current setup "will favor the development of supercells capable of tornadoes and large hail."

Oh, joy!
