Severe storms possible from Kansas down to the Texas/Mexico border today.  All modes of severe weather will be possible, but the tornado threat will be highest over the plains of Colorado, Kansas and Missouri.

Tornado Potential

Here is the latest tornado risk forecast.  The 5% risk over Kansas City down to Wichita will mean the possibility of a few tornadoes today.  Please be weather alert and prepared to head to your safe spot when severe weather strikes.
