Severe Weather Today from the Ohio Valley to South Texas
9 May 2019 7:55 AM
It was once again another active 24 hours of severe weather, especially in the middle of the nation. The severe thunderstorm threat today (Thursday) will extend from the Ohio Valley into the southern Plains. Instability will be climbing in a high, moisture rich environment.
A large area from the Plains to Great Lakes could see severe storms today, but areas from Texas to Alabama will have the highest chance for severe storms. This means a risk of large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.
All modes of severe weather are in the forecast today with the risk of destructive winds, hail over 2" in diameter and strong tornadoes. WeatherNation will be on-air covering this potentially dangerous situation all day and all night.
Today's storms will begin to develop during the peak heating hours this afternoon. Then the storms should last well into Thursday morning with strong upper-level winds allowing these storms to stay intense. More updates are on the way on-air and online.
