Severe Storms Developing Tonight....Evening Update
Depending on the final count after National Weather Service teams assess the damages, Thursday will likely become the third or fourth most active severe weather day of the year.
After a week that has already produced tornadoes in the Great Bend and Hoisington areas, forecasters say that conditions are ripe for more of that type weather across the state.
The Storm Prediction Center says strong wind gusts and large, damaging hail are also possible throughout the region.
Tulsa County and the Tulsa area remain under a tornado watch until midnight, as well as a flash flood watch and severe thunderstorm warning.
Any storm that forms on Thursday, Friday or Saturday could easily produce locally heavy rainfall, gusty winds and frequent lightning. These are the same categories we were in on Monday, in which parts of our area were impacted by 70 miles per hour winds and tennis ball-sized hail.
Local areas from southeastern Nebraska into northwestern Wisconsin are cleaning up from Tuesday night's severe weather, which included several tornadoes. There will be a threat for a few tornadoes with the strongest storms as well.
We're becoming more concerned with an increasing very large hail and damaging wind event across parts of North Texas through late evening.
Another chance of strong to severe storms on Friday for mainly south-central and southeast Kansas during the afternoon/evening. Storms should continue to move east through the evening hours, arriving along the I-35 corridor somewhere around 5-6 pm and into our eastern counties between 6-8 pm.
"The storm threat will extend as far south as part of the Big Bend area of the Rio Grande River in southern Texas to northern Missouri, including the Kansas City metro area", according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski. The current severe thunderstorm warning is set to expire soon as storms pass through the area.
Friday, there is a 70 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, with a high near 76, the weather service said.
Tulsa recorded 0.24 of an inch of rain Tuesday, bringing the month's total rainfall to 2.16 inches.
The trigger for these storms will come from upper level winds and boundaries separating drier, cooler air to the west from warm, humid air to the east, with the battle zone setting up across Kansas and Oklahoma.
