Severe Weather Threatens Great Plains

8 Apr 2017, 9:25 pm

Another round of strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to take aim at the Plains toward the end of the weekend.

Thunderstorms will increase in coverage Sunday afternoon. Storms will be few and far in between Sunday afternoon, increasing in coverage by the evening. Any storm that develops will have the potential to become severe very quickly.


Building warmth into the Plains will lead to temperatures maxing out in the 70s and 80s before the cold front moves through. Instability will peak late afternoon when storms become severe.

Storms Sunday evening will have the potential to produce large hail, damaging wind gusts and an isolated tornado.

This threat will be greatest from central Iowa into Oklahoma. Cities at risk include Oklahoma City, Wichita, Omaha and Des Moines.

Those who have plans outdoors Sunday afternoon need to stay weather aware and to monitor the latest weather.
