Severe Thunderstorms Ahead for Central and Southern Plains

10 Oct 2019, 11:10 am

A sharp cold front moving through the Plains will bring severe thunderstorms to the nation’s mid-section today (Thursday). A slight risk for severe thunderstorms extends from Southwest Missouri to the Red River of the South in Texas.

Strong wind gusts greater than 60 mph, large hail greater than an inch in diameter, and a few tornadoes are likely in the strongest storms. Strong Jet Stream energy above the cold front coupled with building instability will aid in the development of severe thunderstorms.

A line of storms will form in the late afternoon and early evening. The wave of storms will expand throughout the evening, with severe storms forming and pushing eastward. Heavy rain is also possible.
