There is the possibility for severe weather in the Central and Southern Plains to start this week. A marginal severe weather risk today extends through the Front Range and into High Plains. Isolated storms may contain large hail and strong winds. There is also a low tornado chance.
Coverage is not expected to be widespread, as computer model forecasts indicated isolated cells in the region. The storms that do develop could become severe as heat and humidity is slowly building in the atmosphere. Areas from the Black Hills to the Oklahoma Panhandle may see severe weather.
In South Texas, severe storms are also possible with a marginal risk from the Storm Prediction Center. The storms will be slow moving, so heavy rain could produce isolated flooding problems, along with large hail and strong wind gusts.
Severe weather probabilities continue on Tuesday from Western Iowa through Nebraska. On Wednesday, a stronger system aloft coupled with a surface low pressure center and front will bring a better chance for severe weather to the Plains. A slight risk for severe storms extends from Western Illinois to Kansas.
