Severe weather outbreak continues today!
Portions of eastern Iowa, Minnesota into northern Illinois and Wisconsin are bracing for what will be Day-2 of a severe weather outbreak, which began last evening over western Iowa as numerous damaging tornadoes occurred over the northwestern portion of the state. The upper Mississippi Valley and Great Lakes region is under the greatest threat this afternoon into the evening, as extreme wind shear will be in place along with moderate instability. Thunderstorms that initiate this afternoon are likely to be supercellular, and will be capable of strong to violent tornadoes and extremely large hail. This is a serious weather situation, and is a little early in the year for severe weather this area, so those in the affected areas are urged to review severe weather safety information and keep their NOAA weather radio handy. -- Click READ MORE for additional information and video from yesterday-- *LIVE VIDEO HERE*
