Streak of Slight Risk

Posted: 21 Jun 2022 05:33 AM

As of the time publishing this featured chart, the Storm Prediction Center has just a marginal risk of severe weather forecast as the highest risk category for today over the contiguous US. If this were to hold through the day without any upgrades to a slight risk, it would be the first time since 25 April without at least a slight risk forecast. Of course, April through June are the prime months for severe weather in this country, so having such a streak this time of year makes sense. The featured chart presents the maximum risk category since 1 March this year. An obvious question is has such a streak happened before? Unfortunately, an answer is not straight forward as the threat categories have slightly changed over the years.

Updated: SPC issued a slight risk with the 11:30 AM update, so the streak continues for another day!

Good = 18
Bad = 1
