After a quiet start on Monday, the central United States will see a change through mid-week with a threat for thunderstorms. A cold front exiting from the Rockies will meet up with warm, moist air over the central plains. The cooler and drier air behind the front will clash with the warmer air to create storms from Texas to Minnesota. A marginal risk for severe weather extends from northern Oklahoma to western Iowa.
Severe storms are most likely to develop in the evening with the threat for large hail and damaging winds. In the warm sector of the storm, areas like Dodge City, KS will see high temperatures as much as 15 degrees above average.
