NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – A National Weather Service forecaster says there is a slight chance that storms carrying large hail and tornadoes could hit parts of the Great Plains stretching from Nebraska, through Kansas, Oklahoma and North Texas.
Richard Thompson at the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, says tennis-ball-sized hail and tornados could form Wednesday afternoon. He says the storms will likely be widely spaced apart and that it’s too early to tell how many are projected or where in the region they could hit.
Thunderstorms and precipitation are projected for much of the affected area.
The severe weather is expected to taper off by about 10 p.m. but storms are projected daily throughout the region through Saturday.
