An active severe weather pattern is likely to continue this week, focused across the Plains and Ohio Valley. Severe thunderstorms are likely today in the mid section of the nation. The risk continues on Wednesday and Thursday from Maryland to Texas. Instability and Jet Stream energy is forecast to be slightly less on Wednesday when compared to today (Tuesday). A few severe storms will likely form near the dry line in the afternoon and evening hours, pushing from north Texas to the Arklatex. Along the front in the central Plains, isolated severe cells may form in the early evening. Storms will likely be on-going Thursday morning ahead of a cold front from the Great Lakes to Texas. Humidity is expected to be high ahead of the front, but lower instability due to cloud cover. Weak upper level energy will lead to isolated severe thunderstorms, but coverage is expected to be limited. Have a severe weather plan in place, in case you need to take shelter Tuesday and Wednesday if threatening storms approach your area. Be sure to check back with WeatherNation on-air and online if you are in the severe weather risk areas. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
