UPDATE: Today’s Severe Threat

The threat for severe weather still remains today, however, there have been a few changes made to the forecast given recent weather data that is coming in. Earlier today, The Storm Prediction Center had the threat for tornadoes well into Northern Oklahoma. However, the threat for tornadoes has now been pushed well north (as in Kansas and Nebraska). But, while the risk of tornadoes is well north (like we typically see in the summer), the risk for hail and winds will still be present today.

I still see the risk of hail and damaging winds being there for this afternoon and evening, but the large hail potential may be limited. The freezing level in the atmosphere from Oklahoma City to Wichita,Kansas is rather high, near 19,000 feet ( about a mile higher than we see in the spring time), which means that any hail that does fall will likely stay in the form of change, aka money, and probably not into the sporting ball size. The risk for storms will diminish greatly after midnight.
