Click here for an update from Saturday afternoon.

A multi-day severe weather outbreak is likely over the next several days from the Plains eventually eastward into the Southeast.

For late Saturday afternoon and Saturday night, there is a slight risk of a few severe thunderstorms across the southern Plains. The timing appears to be too late for widespread activity. With that said, a few storms could produce large hail and gusty winds toward and after sunset. The tornado risk is relatively low.

I will probably target somewhere in southwestern Oklahoma, based on how trends develop later today. I still have to review more data as this is a marginal setup, however a slight change with a number of variables could change the resultant outcome.

For Sunday I am heading east as there exists a strong potential for a major severe weather outbreak with tornadoes near the Arklatex area. Monday shifts slightly further east and Tuesday could continue into the Southeastern United States.

Stay tuned for more information.
