Forecasters at the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) are warning residents in the Mississippi Valley region of a possible severe weather outbreak on Sunday, April 27, 2014.

The SPC issued a "Moderate Risk" of severe weather on Saturday but noted "An upgrade to High Risk" was not out of the question when the new outlook is released early Sunday morning. The current forecast calls for the possibility of "strong tornadoes."

Leo Fabi, a public spokesperson at says Sunday's forecast includes weather parameters that are often associated with "violent, long tracked tornadoes." "The combination of strong jet stream energy, a powerful low pressure system, wind shear and high surface moisture levels are cause for concern. Anyone living in the risk areas must pay attention tomorrow. It's a good day to make sure your weather alert radio is working."
