I don't normally like to be an alarmist when it comes to weather predictions.  Figuring out if it's gonna storm or not is like trying to nail jello to a wall.  But, the Storm Prediction Center has issued an advisory for this weekend and Saturday specifically that we would be wise to keep our eye on.

The advisory includes a lot of weather jargon that I don't understand (yes, I know there are A LOT of things I don't understand).  But this part of their advisory I do understand:

"SHOULD PRODUCE AND ENVIRONMENT FAVORABLE FOR A TORNADO OUTBREAK. AFTER COLLABORATION WITH WFOS WICHITA...NORMAN...TOPEKA...TULSA AND DODGE CITY...A HIGH RISK WILL BE ISSUED DUE TO THE POTENTIAL FOR A HIGH-END LIFE THREATENING EVENT ACROSS THE SRN AND CNTRL PLAINS."

Now, the focus of this alert is for Kansas and Oklahoma.  Our area is in the "slight" risk category...but it bears watching as you start your weekend.
