Strong tornadoes possible in central United States; warmup arrives on East Coast

April FrancisMay 02, 2018

Again all modes of severe weather will be possible so be ready for anything. The first round of damaging winds, large hail and brief tornadoes comes on Monday from western Texas to southern South Dakota, including Dodge City, Sioux Falls and Amarillo.

On Wednesday, a little more than half of the state, stretching from just west of Salina, east into Missouri, north into Nebraska and south well into Oklahoma is in an enhanced threat fro severe storms that could bring large hail up to near three inches in diameter, wind gusts of up to about 70 miles per hour and isolated tornadoes.

"A few tornadoes likely with a couple intense tornadoes possible", a statement issued by the Storm Prediction Center said.

An active jet stream is setting up an active storm pattern that will move over the US heartland and produce multiple days of severe weather starting Monday and continuing through Wednesday.

TV-13 meteorologist Doug Meyers says most of our area should avoid any severe weather Tuesday night, with the greater risk of strong storms from north-central Kansas to the east along the Kansas-Nebraska state line. The High Resolution Rapid Refresh forecast model is showing storms beginning around 5 p.m.to 7 p.m. with potentially discrete supercell thunderstorms in central Kansas and southeast Nebraska.
