Severe Weather Possible Thursday
By: John Dissauer

STORMTEAM WEATHER CENTER --Severe weather will be possible across the Heartland this morning through the mid-afternoon.

  1. Our first chance of severe storms will occur during the morning and early afternoon Thursday.  A cold front will begin to move from west to east across the Heartland during the afternoon.  Ahead of the cold front, it looks as though the sun should peak out from behind the morning clouds as some drier air works in to the area.  This will allow temperatures to warm and destabilize the atmosphere.  The Storm Prediction Center has placed the Heartland under a "Moderate Risk" of severe weather from 7am Thursday through 7am Friday (see the second graphic on the right).  The storms that fire along the front will be moving at a quick pace (50+mph).  The main threat from this line will be damaging wind and tornadoes.

You can get weather conditions 24-hours a day on and the StormTeam Weather Network (our new 24-hour weather channel).  To watch the StormTeam Weather Network on your tv, tune your digital tuner to channel 12.4 or check your local cable listing.  You can also watch a live video feed of StormTeam Digital Doppler on your computer by going to
