Forecasters say Southern Plains at risk for severe storms
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Forecasters say severe thunderstorms capable of producing large hail and damaging winds are possible in areas of the Central and Southern Plains.
The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, says isolated severe thunderstorms may form Saturday afternoon and evening from southwest Texas to the Upper Mississippi River Valley.
Forecasters say there is also a slight risk of severe thunderstorms across southwest Oklahoma and adjacent parts of northern Texas late Sunday, with large hail the primary concern. Heavy rainfall may occur over the region.
Additional storms are forecast to develop over southern Kansas near along a cold front and move southward into Oklahoma overnight. The chance of storms will continue throughout the coming week.
