Maybe April will be no severe wx or outbreaks after all.  Total opposite of what many were thinking.  Wx is always opposite of what is predicted these days it seems.

does look a bit quiet for us the next several days

I saw a Facebook meme comparing it to a Goldfish lol. Yesterday's looked like a Avocado. 

Some will look like teardrops, some in the summertime especially can take on a dead tree look, and sometimes they are shaped well like certain body parts.

I am a long time lurker here and appreciate all the helpful and humorous insights this board provides. I do have a request though, My stepdaughter has an outdoor wedding planned for Saturday afternoon (4:00 pm). Can you give me any hope that I won't need to change locations?
I survived the Xenia, OH tornado of 1974 in a bank vault.

The text forecast from the NWS seems to hint the main action is expected before 1:00 PM, but with still a chance into the evening. There may be a break in the action around the time you're asking about, perhaps the rain will have moved out altogether. But, I'd suggest a backup plan. Ponchos for the guests just in case?

By the way, from your sig line...

I did suggest a slip and slide to my wife, but I got the look ...
