After a busy severe weather day in the Northeast on Monday, the threat for severe thunderstorms shifts back into the Plains for the next several days. A slight risk for severe thunderstorms is centered in Kansas this afternoon and evening. Strong wind gusts greater than 60 mph and hail larger than the size of quarters is possible. There is also a slight risk for severe thunderstorms with isolated tornadoes associated with Tropical Storm Cindy along the Gulf of Mexico coast.
A cold front slowly moving to the Southeast is coupled with a low pressure center and trough sliding in from the west. Severe thunderstorms are possible ahead of each system this evening, mainly in Kansas. Storms are expected to weaken by the overnight.
The risk for severe thunderstorms continues across the Plains Wednesday and extends into the Great Lakes on Thursday. A slight risk for severe thunderstorms has already been mapped out by the Storm Prediction Center.
