Severe weather is forecast for a broad area extending from the Texas Big Bend through the southern and central Plains and into the upper Midwest on Wednesday (yellow shaded areas on the image above).
The greatest risk of severe weather, including very large hail and tornadoes, will exist within the black and red hatched areas on the image above, from portions of Western and central Kansas into Western and central Oklahoma and Northwest Texas. This enhanced risk area includes the Great Bend, Wichita, Oklahoma City, Wichita Falls and Abilene areas.
The most vigorous of the severe thunderstorms are forecast to form along a dryline across western Kansas into western Oklahoma and northwest Texas by late afternoon Wednesday. This activity will then move and develop East/Northeastward into adjacent portions of the same states during the evening and overnight hours.
Please keep abreast of the latest forecasts over the next couple of days if you live in these areas.
