Tornadoes, large hail over quarter size, and winds over 58 mph. Note the percentages are the odds that an individual storm can turn severe with these conditions. Ex: Tornado Threat of 5% means that each storm has a 5% chance of a funnel cloud forming. That means most storms will NOT do that, but still a high risk for our region and worth paying attention to.
