   PUBLIC SEVERE WEATHER OUTLOOK  
   NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
   1039 AM CST SUN NOV 17 2013

   ...OUTBREAK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS OVER PARTS OF THE OHIO AND
   MIDDLE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY REGION AND SOUTHERN GREAT LAKES REGION FOR
   THE REMAINDER OF TODAY INTO TONIGHT...

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK is forecasting an
   outbreak of severe thunderstorms, including strong tornadoes,
   widespread damaging winds, and large hail, over parts of the Ohio
   and middle Mississippi Valley region and southern Great Lakes region
   for the remainder of today into tonight.

   The areas most likely to experience this activity include:

          eastern Illinois
          Indiana
          southern Lower Michigan
          western Ohio

   Elsewhere, severe storms are also possible from parts of Wisconsin,
   Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee
   northeastward across much of the Appalachians to the lower Great
   Lakes and southern New England.

   Numerous fast-moving thunderstorms, capable of producing strong
   tornadoes along with widespread damaging winds and large hail, will
   move across portions of the middle Mississippi and Ohio Valley
   region and the southern Great Lakes region for the remainder of
   today into this evening. Damaging winds will remain a concern as
   storms move across the Appalachians and portions of the Northeast
   tonight, while severe storms will also be possible this afternoon
   into tonight across parts of the Tennessee and lower Mississippi
   Valleys.

   State and local emergency managers are monitoring this potentially
   very dangerous situation. Those in the threatened area are urged to
   review severe weather safety rules and to listen to radio,
   television, and NOAA Weather Radio for possible watches, warnings,
   and statements later today.
