A low pressure center moving across the Plains will bring the risk for severe thunderstorms today (Friday). Humidity will be climbing with a rich, southerly flow of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. Ahead of the system, temperatures will be warming. This will create instability to support severe storms. A slight risk for severe weather has been mapped out by the Storm Prediction Center for central Oklahoma into western Missouri. Large hail and strong wind gusts will be the primary risks, with an isolated tornado possible. As temperatures surge well into the 70s, a weak upper level disturbance will move across the area along with a surface low pressure center and trough. With very cold temperatures aloft, hail is possible with any storms that develop. Storm coverage will continue to increase along the warm front and ahead of the low pressure center into this evening. A marginal severe weather risk is posted for Saturday. Areas from the Tennessee Valley to the Mississippi Delta may see strong wind gusts as the storm system moves into the region.
