Upcoming Severe Weather Threats

The severe weather season out in the Plains is starting to gear up, at least for the next week or so. Scattered severe thunderstorms are forecast for Wednesday afternoon/evening from north Texas up into southeastern Nebraska. The main threat is large hail, but some storms could also produce damaging winds. A few isolated tornadoes are possible too, with that threat being most focused near the Kansas/Nebraska line.

After quieting down for Thursday and Friday, a potentially more significant severe weather outbreak is becoming more likely for the weekend. This threat would likely begin in the Plains on Saturday and shift east toward the Arklatex area by Sunday and perhaps into Dixie Alley on Monday.

The weekend threat could be more widespread with a greater tornado potential, but stay tuned for more updates throughout the week.

I will be out in the field storm chasing both the Wednesday and weekend threats. I’ll have more details on that later tonight or Wednesday morning.
