If your one that frequently checks in on my severe weather report you'll notice that I always end it with a risk area that is outlined by the Storm Prediction Center in Norman Oklahoma. This outline is used as a guide that is color coded and can include either a SLIGHT RISK
, a MODERATE RISK
and a [COLOR=Magenta"HIGH RISK[/COLOR] for severe weather and/or a combination of all three. Several of you have emailed me and asked just what exactly does this mean.
