The red, yellow, and orange risk areas delineate to at least an Alert Level 3 while the areas not indicated by a corresponding day indicates a lower risk of severe weather. The main risks in the corresponding Alert Level 3 areas are the potential for widespread damaging winds/large hail and tornadoes...some possibly strong, especially on Tuesday. Otherwise, the marginal risk areas pose less of a severe weather threat. Stay tuned...as modifications maybe needed in future outlooks. All forecasts are not final.
