Weather 101: Severe Weather Outlooks

Ever wonder what we mean when we mention the different levels of severe weather? Join Meteorologist Rick Katzfey as he breaks down what you can expect with the varying levels of severe weather. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) releases outlooks for severe weather daily that cover a time span of up to 8 days in advance. They look for places across the country that the ingredients are coming together for severe weather. There are 5 levels of severe weather potential. The threat of severe weather becomes worse as levels increase on the scale. Level 5 days or High Risk are very rare and only occur a few times each year. This is how the color break down goes: Thunderstorms- light green Level 1- green (Marginal) Level 2- yellow (Slight) Level 3- orange (Enhanced) Level 4- red (Moderate) Level 5- pink (High) Hopefully your knowledge of severe weather outlooks has increased, and this information also helps you to understand what the threat level is when we show them to you in our forecasts. As always you can send us your questions and any topics you want us to cover to our email weather@knwa.com. Stay safe and healthy everyone!
