Big Day
Saturday, 14 April 2012 14:40
20120414_severeToday is another big day for severe weather. From Minnesota to Texas, a large portion of the central U.S. is under a severe weather threat. A PSWO has been issued mainly for Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. This area is under a High risk for severe weather, including dangerous and long tracked tornadoes. As of 3:00 p.m., several PDS Tornado Watches have already been issued.
It was only the second time in U.S. history that the Storm Prediction Center issued a high-risk warning more than 24 hours in advance, said Russ Schneider, director of the center, which is part of the National Weather Service. The first time was in April 2006, when nearly 100 tornadoes tore across the southeastern U.S., killing a dozen people and damaging more than 1,000 homes in Tennessee. By SEAN MURPHY, Associated Press
20120414_day2Tomorrow brings the severe threat closer to home. The current Day 2 Outlook has a Slight chance for severe just clipping our area. Tomorrow's threat is less significant than today with primarily high winds and hail a threat during an expected cold front passage. Central Wisconsin is under a Moderate threat tomorrow.

The unprecedented heat in March gave way to more seasonable temperatures, and recently we had a batch of Freeze Watches and Warnings. The temperature is expected to get near 80 degrees tomorrow before the storms pass and then temperatures should drop back into more seasonable upper 50s and 60s for the remainder of the week with chances of showers and storms returning by mid week.
