Over the next few hours severe thunderstorms will likely develop from the Plains into the South. Severe Thunderstorm Watches are already in effect in Mississippi, Nebraska, Iowa, and Kansas. Additional watches are being considered for issuance in the next few hours.

Large hail greater than an inch in diameter and wind gusts higher than 60 mph are possible tonight. The focus area in near Omaha, Des Moines, and Kansas City. The risk for tornadoes is low.

A low pressure center and trough will move through the Central Plains tonight, creating severe thunderstorms. Early evening storms will start near the Missouri River and shift into Iowa and Missouri throughout the night.

The low pressure center and cold front will push eastward over the next few days. The Great Lakes and Ohio Valley will have the threat for severe storms this weekend. On Monday, the Eastern Seaboard may see severe thunderstorms.
