Severe Weather Possible in the Plains and Mississippi Valley
A widespread area has the potential to see severe thunderstorms today (Wednesday). The risk extends from the high Plains to the southern Plains, and also includes parts of the Ohio Valley and lower Mississippi Valley. You can read more about the enhanced risk, centered around the Arklatex, at this link.
Instability will be building ahead of two cold fronts: one stretching from the Ohio Valley to the southern Plains, and the other in the high Plains. Warm temperatures and increasing humidity will supply fuel to produce severe thunderstorms.
Here’s a look at the forecast throughout the afternoon and evening. Severe storms will be most likely near fronts and around the low pressure centers in the northern Plains and Ohio Valley. The most intense storms will likely be seen in northern Texas ahead of the cold front.
