On June 23, 2018 the NWS has issued a “Moderate Risk for parts of Southern Kansas & Northern Oklahoma for June 24, 2018. So, you might be asking what’s a Moderate Risk? Or how bad is a Moderate Risk? A moderate risk is the 2nd highest rating for Outlooks (1st being High Risk). So how bad is a Moderate Risk? Well, it’s pretty bad. For moderate risk, there’s a likely chance for severe weather. Large Hail, Widespread Wind Damage, Long Track & Strong Tornadoes are expected for moderate risk days. So far, we haven’t had a lot of tornadoes being EF-3+, so far of this post there has been only 5. But tomorrow, could increase that amount. If your in the Slight Risk Areas - Moderate Risk, make sure to tune in to your local weather stations tomorrow!
