The time to prepare is now.  A very volatile storm system will take shape Monday and Tuesday in the Great Plains.  In fact, a few isolated severe thunderstorms will be possible during the overnight hours Sunday into Monday in the Texas Panhandle. All eyes then turn to Monday afternoon and evening when the dynamics for a severe weather outbreak will come together. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has already highlighted portions of Texas and Oklahoma for a significant severe weather risk. A high risk is defined by the SPC as an area where a severe weather outbreak is expected from either numerous intense and long-tracked tornadoes or a long-lived derecho-producing thunderstorm complex that produces hurricane-force wind gusts and widespread damage. This risk is reserved for when high confidence exists in widespread coverage of severe weather with embedded instances of extreme severe (i.e., violent tornadoes or very damaging convective wind events). Sizable cities such as Lubbock, Wichita Falls, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and many others need to stay alert and attuned to the latest forecast. The threat for severe thunderstorms and flooding rain will continue into Tuesday as this storm system moves east.  A corridor from roughly Dallas to St. Louis should prepare for another round of active weather.   In addition to our team of meteorologists in the studio, WeatherNation will have crews in the field, safely bringing you the latest images and storms develop.
