Severe Weather vs. "Significant" Severe Weather
The Storm Prediction Center adds the word "Significant" when it considers a 10% or higher probability for significant severe events within 25 miles of any point; "Significant" being defined as tornadoes rated EF2 or greater, thunderstorm wind gusts of hurricane force (74mph) or higher, or hail 2 inches or larger in diameter.
In the image above, the black "hatched" area is where the potential for Significant Severe Weather exists on Tuesday.
The National Weather Service says damaging winds, large hail (possibly greater than 2 inches in diameter), and a few tornadoes are possible especially in the black hatched area during the late afternoon hours of Tuesday.
