So far it’s a pleasant day out there with a mix of clouds and sunshine. A warm front was located along the Red River moving north. While a couple of storms may develop along that front this afternoon, our main chance of storms still looks like it will be tonight.
A moderate risk of severe storms is located over western Kansas this afternoon and tonight. Thunderstorms are already forming in southwest Nebraska, and a tornado watch covers parts of Kansas, Colorado and Nebraska.
Storms will continue to develop in the watch area throughout the rest of the afternoon and evening. By later tonight, the storms will organize into a squall line that will move rapidly southeast into Oklahoma. The main threats will be quarter size hail and wind gusts to around 70 mph. The timing of the storms will be northwest Oklahoma around midnight, and central Oklahoma after 4 am Friday.
After the storms pass Friday morning, the rest of the day could end up dry. Another round of storms will be possible Friday night into Saturday morning.
That’s the latest for right now, of course I’ll have more coming up this evening on Eyewitness News 5 at 5, 6, and 10 pm.
