19 Jul 2020, 5:21 am

Increasing severe storms are in the forecast across the central Plains today.  Damaging winds and large hail will be the primary threats with any storms that try to turn severe.  Today’s storms will be driven by the heating of the day. Here is the very latest on today’s severe risk.

Severe storms will be possible from southern Montana to southern New Mexico with a stronger risk in Colorado and Nebraska.

Severe Risks

Damaging winds and hail will be the main threats, but a small area of Nebraska and Wyoming will have a chance for an isolated tornado.
