Severe Storms Bring Threat for Tornadoes, Flooding

15 Sep 2016, 6:09 pm

Severe thunderstorms will pound much of the central plains and southwestern United States Thursday night. As storms developed in eastern Colorado Thursday afternoon, they produced golf ball size hail and gusty winds.


Storms will also be capable of producing tornadoes Thursday evening in Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, and New Mexico. As storms continue to march east through the late evening and overnight, the main threats will become damaging winds and heavy rain.


Flash flooding will be a threat from southern Minnesota to Missouri. A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect for portions of Nebraska and Iowa until Friday morning with the potential for 2-4 inches of rainfall. Localized areas may see more.



More strong to severe storms will fire up Friday afternoon from Kansas to New Mexico. The main threats will be damaging winds and large hail, but isolated tornadoes are also possible.
