Here’s the latest Storm Tracker Forecast from News 10 Meteorologist Tim Drawbridge

Tornado WATCH until 5pm…

==========

A Tornado WATCH has been posted until 5pm for most of the News 10 / WTEN viewing area . . . why you may ask?

As we talked about earlier both on-air and on-line . . . there’s a LOT of wind energy in the lowest part of the atmosphere . . . it won’t take much to transfer that wind energy to the ground.

Also, something called “shear” – an indicator of rotation . . . the shear numbers are high . . . and, if we continue to see some breaks in the clouds which would allow for some additional heating, this would help to enhance the severe weather potential . . .

One of the unique things . . . there’s no lightning reports via the Lightning Detection Network with the approaching line to the south & west . .
