Severe Weather Threat Continues to Increase

Severe Weather Threat Continues to Increase

This will support more of a damaging wind and large hail threat. Right now, the tornado threat looks very low. The better storm chances will probably be north of the area.

The main threats will be damaging winds, hail and flash flooding.

It is Severe Summer Weather Awareness week in North Dakota, a week held by states nationally as the weather heats up.

An enhanced risk for severe storms stretches from Western Oklahoma to northern Missouri - including Wichita, Kansas, and Kansas City, Missouri - and an area from central Oklahoma to central Kansas will be more at risk for tornadoes than any other location Wednesday.

Storms will most likely develop east of Dodge City then quickly form a line extending northeastward toward Salina and Topeka. Today we had one storm near New Raymer that caused a Severe Thunderstorm Warning and a storm near Akron that reached severe levels. "Slight" is the second-lowest risk category and "marginal" is the lowest used by the SPC.

Another chance of rain exists, but the highest odds of development are mainly for areas west of I-35. Last May was particularly active with 73 severe thunderstorm warnings issued and just a few less than that in June. With high pressure to the east and low pressure to the west, southerly winds are pushing moisture from the Gulf of Mexico northward across the Central Plains. Chance of precipitation is 70 percent. This means large hail, heavy rain, strong winds and tornadoes will be possible. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 73.

Ahead of the storm, gusty winds of more than 50 miles per hour have enhanced wildfires from Arizona to Texas and Minnesota. Winds could gust as high as 25 miles per hour.

Friday: Sunny, with a high near 76. North wind 5 to 10 miles per hour.

The true surface front will move across eastern OK early Friday from approximately 1 a.m.to 4 a.m. with a narrow line of showers and storms. Northwest wind around 5 miles per hour.
