Severe storms are looking very likely on Friday for the Mississippi Valley.  These areas are already under a slight or enhanced risk of severe weather.

Severe Outlook

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.

Forecast

Here is the latest timing of the storms on Friday.  Thunderstorm development should start to take shape by Friday afternoon and continue through the evening.  Large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes will all be possible.
