“A rather active severe weather day”

That’s the Storm Prediction Center’s assessment for today in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. Large hail and damaging winds are most likely in southern and central Kansas today, while tornadoes are possible this afternoon and evening on both sides of the Red River in Oklahoma and Texas. See the accompanying map for more details.

Today

April showers…

….are likely tonight and Thursday in the Wichita area. The Storm Prediction Center has most of Texas, the Oklahoma panhandle and Kansas west of Garden City under a slight risk for severe weather today. But that’s just the opening round.

“It looks like we could see another round of storms on Thursday,” said Greg Carbin, warning coordination meteorologist for the SPC.

Central and northern Kansas is under a slight risk for severe weather on Thursday. Remnants of Wednesday’s storm system are expected to collide with a cool front sliding down from the northwest that afternoon.

There’s plenty of uncertainty about the timing and intensity of the celestial fireworks on Thursday, Carbin said, so folks should stay tuned to conditions.
