Severe Weather Possible

The same storm system dropping temperatures 30 to 50 degrees in the center of the nation and bringing all the wind will potentially bring a round of severe weather too.

The greatest risk today is from the southern Mississippi River Valley north into the Great Lakes region. (Louisiana to Indiana/Ohio)

Some storms could produce tornadoes -- there is a lot of wind shear, or winds changing direction and speed with height -- across the center of the nation -- and this is a main ingredient that forecasters look for to get thunderstorms rotating.
