After a Moderate Risk for severe weather was issued for parts of the Plains for storms on Sunday, fortunately, the severe threat doesn't appear to be as ominous as it looked. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) lowered the severe threat two levels for Sunday's storms, bringing the outlook down to a Slight instead of the Moderate that was issued on Saturday (and the Enhanced that was in place earlier on Sunday). Overall, the threat for damaging winds and hail along with tornadoes does not appear to be as high as it was earlier this weekend. On a 0-to-5 scale, a Slight is a 2, an Enhanced a 3 and a Moderate is a 4 in terms of the perceived risk for severe storms. The main threat zone is still in the southern Plains, in parts of Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. Right now, it appears that a strong line of storms will race eastwards late tonight and overnight, impacting places like Wichita, Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Springfield, Missouri with a threat for strong storms late Sunday night and early Monday morning. Even with the lower overall threat, make sure to stay weather aware on Sunday, especially if you have any outdoor plans. When thunder roars, head indoors!
