Severe Weather Chances Monday for Parts of Oklahoma and Kansas

9 Oct 2017, 10:27 am

A large trough moving through the Central Rockies (the same one bringing the snow to Colorado) will continue to push east and impact the Central Plains Monday afternoon. An associated surface low in northwest Oklahoma this morning will be moving into a favorable environment for thunderstorm development during the late afternoon and early evening. This system will have enough energy to work with to create thunderstorms and likely some severe storms.

Increasing low-level moisture will be pushing north out of Texas into Oklahoma during the afternoon. Dew points should be in the mid 60s and when you factor in highs in the mid to upper 80s thunderstorm development will be very likely.  When these storms develop, they will likely increase in intensity and produce large hail, damaging winds and even a few tornadoes.

Here is a look at today’s Severe Weather Risks

The latest timing for the severe storms will be during the late afternoon and early evening. Here is the latest timing from our Forecast Radar

If you live in eastern Oklahoma and southeast Kansas you will need to be weather aware for severe potential during the afternoon hours.
