HAZARD-SPECIFIC PROBABILITIES

Dive deeper into the severe weather threat with a hazard-specific probability graphic. The probability graphic depicts the chance of severe weather occurring within 25 miles of any given point (such as your home).

 

The outlook on day 3 combines all forms (tornado, wind, and hail) into a single black hatched area for a 10% or higher significant-severe risk. In addition, for tropical cyclones (hurricanes, tropical storms, and depressions), the outlook on day 3 allows a 5% total severe probability to be a level two (SLGT) risk because they are specifically tornado-driven.
