The enhanced risk of severe weather includes NE Texas, NW Louisiana, E Oklahoma, SW Missouri and western Arkansas.  The slight risk sets up from southern Iowa all the way down to the Texas Gulf Coast. Here is the difference between an Enhanced and a Slight risk of severe weather. The fact that we are already seeing an enhanced risk of severe weather and we are a few days out shows the confidence in this severe forecast.
