Large hail, damaging winds moving east today

The Southwest, Plains, and Upper Midwest are in for a busy weather day.

Fire risk in the Southwest has grown and shifted slightly north and east. Red flag warnings span from New Mexico into Texas and go as far north as southeast Nebraska.


As for severe weather, a low pressure system continues to develop in northeast Colorado while a trough in the upper levels of the atmosphere pushes it along.

This has created severe weather conditions in parts of Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas as well as the northern Plains and Upper Midwest. The biggest threats with these storms will likely be large hail and strong winds, but a few isolated tornadoes can't be ruled out completely.

In Texas and Oklahoma, thunderstorms should begin to develop in the afternoon and evening. Farther to the north, it may be later in the day and into the overnight hours when thunderstorms begin to pop up.

This risk for severe weather isn't going away the rest of the week. It's just moving east on Thursday and Friday, making it as far as central Indiana.


The chances for severe weather are slim at best all three days. Thunderstorms will likely develop, and only a few will likely become severe. Keep a close eye on weather forecasts the rest of the week for any changes.
