The tension mounts.
Going to be a fun weekend.
"The second major severe weather outbreak in less than a week is forecast by AccuWeather.com meteorologists to begin in the Midwest Saturday night.
In what is likely to produce hundreds of severe weather incidents ranging from large hail to tornadoes, there will again be major risks to lives and property in over a dozen states. People are going to want to take this severe weather outbreak very seriously."

For those in the Midwest U.S.
"Powerful thunderstorms are forecast to fire from Oklahoma to Iowa Saturday afternoon. The storms will bring the risks of very large hail and high wind gusts along with the usual blinding downpour and lightning strike threats. Hail up to the size of baseballs could fall on a few communities, while golf ball-sized hail could hit other areas inflicting serious damage to vehicle and smashing windows of homes. High wind gusts will be the most common threat Saturday afternoon and evening. The winds could push trees onto cars and into homes. Sporadic power outages are also to be expected. It is possible repeating severe thunderstorms will stretch from Iowa and southern Minnesota to the southern Lower Peninsula of Michigan and into northern Ohio Saturday night. If this occurs, there is the potential for flash flooding along with the wind and hail threats.
Sunday Could be the Worst Day for Tornadoes:
Indeed Saturday could be just the start of a major outbreak of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes Sunday into Monday. It could be a long and trying weekend for emergency response crews. The worst of the storm and the greatest tornado risk may focus from Missouri northward to central Wisconsin on Sunday. There is a chance this area could be hit by a swarm of powerful storms featuring strong tornadoes. As if this were not enough, where winds line up at the surface and aloft, powerful gusts without thunderstorms may kick up a lot of dust over drought-stricken areas of the southern High Plains."
Sometimes they say all this stuff, get us all worked up, and nothing happens at all. So we shall see!

Raining here in PA. Rush is in Hershey, PA today and the last time they played this venue - it was raining about 1/2" or more that evening. I think that was Oct 25. 2002. I took my wife and her friend to the show. I talked to her about it today and she said "we never saw Rush in Hershey". We live in different universes, I guess :-) She even bought the tickets for us that time - I was not at home and she use Ticketmaster and did the ordering.
