Every fall, a clash of air masses occurs over the central United States. Cooler and drier air starts to push farther south and meets up with warm and humid air still present over the plains. This interaction sets up a battleground where severe storms often erupt.
There is an enhanced risk for severe storms across portions of Kansas and Oklahoma Tuesday evening. Golf ball size hail or larger is possible with these storms along with damaging winds and a few tornadoes. The threat for severe storms stretches along a cold front all the way to the Dakotas.
More severe storms will develop across Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma the next two days. Repeated rounds of thunderstorms will produce a threat for heavy rain and flooding. If you encounter flooded roads, remember to turn around, don’t drown.
