It’s easy to get lost and only remember the threat of snow for the Ohio Valley today. However, there is also a threat of severe weather for the Gulf Coast states. The same low pressure system that will create our chance of snow, will also produce a chance of severe weather in that area.
It looks like the predominate threat is tornadoes that will form due to low level moisture and wind shear. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a “slight” risk of severe weather. Again, isolated tornadoes are the primary threat.
As of now, no severe weather watches have been issued, but I wouldn’t be surprised if some were issued later this afternoon and into the evening.
