The risk for severe thunderstorms has pushed slightly eastward for the rest of today (Tuesday). The areas of concern include the Central and High Plains, along with the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. The region around Kansas City is under an enhanced risk for severe thunderstorms, with damaging wind gusts and large hail as the biggest threat. A few tornadoes are possible, especially near the Mississippi River in Iowa and Illinois. Several Severe Thunderstorm Watches have been issued in the Central Plains, with additional watches likely throughout the night. Stay tuned to WeatherNation on-air and online for the latest severe weather alerts and updates. A slow moving cold front will collide with increasing heat and humidity building ahead of the system. This will help severe thunderstorms to develop and sustain into the evening. The storm system that has been slowly marching eastward across the Plains will push into the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys tonight (Tuesday). Severe weather chances will likely continue well into the night. The severe weather threat lowers on Wednesday, but builds back to a slight risk in the High Plains and Upper Midwest on Thursday.
