SPC Outlook Issued at 7:45 a.m.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed the entire tri-state in a slight risk category for severe weather on Friday afternoon. The most recent SPC outlook says large hail will be the primary threat, with damaging winds a lesser threat. A large upper level low is moving into the area today and as things heat up this afternoon, scattered thunderstorms will develop. The threat should diminish this evening after the sun sets. This will not be a widespread severe weather outbreak, but it is something that will need to be monitored.
