Severe Threat for Midwest Later This Week

13 Nov 2017, 1:41 pm

After a relatively severe weather-free and cool period over much of the Midwest, severe weather looks to ramp back up this weekend.

A line of storms in association with a cold front will move through Friday and Saturday, bringing with it a chance for severe weather from Illinois to Texas.

The main threat from these storms looks to be strong winds, but for those of you with outdoor plans on Friday evening or into early Saturday, this could impact you. Isolated tornadoes and large hail cannot be ruled out, but at this time, this doesn’t appear to be the main concern with these storms.

The timing looks to be mostly a Friday system, though some storms could linger into early Saturday, with a few leftover storms possible later Saturday along the East Coast as well.

The good news with this front is it’s a quick mover and should be mostly offshore by late Saturday, with the overall severe threat expected to taper down by the weekend. That said, a much colder, winter-like air mass will move in behind the front.
