Here is the reason I put out the Orange Alert for Friday the 24th, 2017, this quote is directly from the NOAA SPC – Storm Prediction Center
""One or more bands of strong to severe thunderstorms are forecast across the southern Great Lakes and Ohio Valley on Friday and Friday night.""
We are Very Close to the ""Enhanced Area"" for Severe Thunderstorms. So this is 1 of the reasons I put the Alert out for Friday. Again IF it changes, you All will be the first to know about it. Please make sure you watch this page, the main site page at http://www.shelbyohwx.com, and the twitter page, for any changes to Fridays Severe Outlook, and or changes.
