The Storm Prediction Center has issued a tornado watch for the Attractions Area until 11AM Friday morning. The SPC says there’s an overall “slight” risk (level 2 of 5) for severe weather in the area.

Although much of the convection will remain linear, supercells will be most likely on the southern side of the line segments where cells have tended to remain more discrete. A brief tornado could occur with supercells that develop. Wind damage will be possible with supercells but will also along the leading edge of the stronger line segments.
