The Weather Channel's Severe Weather Expert, Dr. Greg Forbes (On Facebook | On Twitter) developed the TOR:CON index to estimate the risk of a tornado on a given day or night near your area. What is TOR:CON?

Latest Forecast for Severe Weather
TOR:CON Value Descriptions

8+ High probability of a tornado
6 - Moderate possibility of a tornado
4 - Low chance of a tornado nearby, but hail and/or high wind gusts possible
2 - Very low chance of a tornado, but hail and/or high wind gusts possible
0 - Near-zero chance of a tornado or a severe thunderstorm

The TOR:CON index ranges from 0 to 10.  Multiply the value by 10 to get your chance of a tornado within 50 miles of a location.  For example, a TOR:CON index of 6 means there's a 60% chance of a tornado within 50 miles of a location (for example, southern Kansas).
