Southern Plains Severe Storm Risk Wednesday

9 Oct 2019, 11:19 am

The large trough moving through the Rockies will allow energy to build over the Southern Plains Wednesday afternoon and evening.  This particular set-up could lead to a risk of severe storms from northwest Texas into the Mississippi Valley.  Here is the very latest.

Severe Outlook

The highest risk for severe storms today will be located over SW Oklahoma and NW Texas.  This is the area where all modes of severe weather will be possible, including the risk of a tornado.

Severe Risks

Large hail, damaging winds and an isolated tornado will all be possible with the storms that fire up today.  If you are in these areas you will want to be weather aware and have plan in place in case you have to take cover.


The timing of today’s storms will be mainly for the afternoon and evening, but the severe risk could push into the Mississippi Valley late tonight and early Thursday morning.
