More than two dozen tornadoes were reported yesterday in the Upper Midwest and more severe weather is likely in the Plains today. There is a slight risk for severe thunderstorms from Indiana to Colorado. The tornado potential is lower than Wednesday and covers a smaller area.
Large hail and strong wind gusts are possible later this afternoon and evening as thunderstorms develop along a cold front stretching from the Western Great Lakes into the Central Plains. A low rippling along the front will be the focus for severe storms in Kansas, Missouri and Iowa.
As the cold front pushes south and east Friday, the severe weather threat will focus on the Eastern Great Lakes and Ozark region. The system is expected to weaken into Saturday with a marginal severe weather risk from New England to the Texas Panhandle.
