Severe Weather Threat in the Plains

16 Aug 2018, 9:34 am

A storm system moving across the central Plains today (Thursday) will bring a chance for severe thunderstorms in the late afternoon and early evening. Strong wind gusts greater than 60 mph and hail larger than a quarter are the biggest threats, along with a low tornado risk.

A hot and humid air mass is located along a slow moving cold front and low pressure center. Storms will develop along the front into this evening, with some likely to become severe. Areas from near Oklahoma City to Kansas City may see intense storms.

There is a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms for Friday and Saturday from the Atlantic Ocean to the Plains.
