Severe Threat Moves Back Into Southern Plains Mid-Week
With severe weather pushing off the East Coast on Monday night and into Tuesday morning, attention will shift back to Texas and the southern plains for more potentially severe weather mid-to-late week.
After big hail and strong winds lashed parts of the south over the weekend, similar threats could return to the region as soon as Tuesday. A slight risk for severe weather, as indicated in the yellow shaded regions in the adjacent map, has been issued by the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) for parts of the Texas panhandle and into southwest Oklahoma. Large damaging hail and strong straight-line winds look like the primary hazards for Tuesday.
By Wednesday, however, an enhanced risk (a degree greater than slight, a three-out-of-five on a zero-to-five scale) for severe weather includes Oklahoma City and just outside of Dallas, Texas, where isolated tornadoes could accompany more widespread hail and strong winds.
The threat pushes east into much of the I-35 corridor of Texas for Thursday, and another system could impact the same region for Friday and Saturday, setting up the potential for another active week of severe weather.
