Today’s severe weather threat across the Great Plains

The Storm Prediction Center has posted a moderate threat for severe weather – including strong tornadoes – in most of western Iowa and a sliver of eastern Nebraska for today.

The slight risk zone extends as far south as the Texas/Oklahoma border and includes the Wichita metropolitan area.

The primary threats for the Wichita area will be damaging winds and hail – though forecasters say a tornado can’t be ruled out.
