First round of severe weather tonight, large hail and tornadoes are possible

Tornado near Elmore City

An even stronger storm system will ride the jet stream from the west into the Plains on Wednesday, bringing an even higher threat for tornadoes, damaging winds and hail to populated areas, such as Abilene, Texas; Oklahoma City; Wichita, Kansas; Kansas City, Missouri; and as far north as Des Moines, Iowa.

Populated areas, including Omaha and parts of Kansas City, will be impacted. In the wake of a frontal system, much of the Midwest and parts of the Northeast are seeing a chilly spring Sunday morning. These threats of medium to large hail, strong wind gusts of up to 70 miles per hour and heavy rain largely impact areas in the north central part of the state, stretching east to north of Topeka and well into south central and southeast Nebraska.

After enjoying about a little more than a week of attractive spring weather, the Omaha-metro area braced for its first bout of severe weather, projected to roll into the area late Tuesday afternoon. We are monitoring the risk for severe weather starting this evening and lasting through Thursday evening where all modes of severe weather are possible.

Now is the time to prepare for severe weather later today.

Strong thunderstorms may try forming late tomorrow afternoon or evening, posing a threat for very large hail, strong winds, and perhaps a tornado.

Primary threats include a few tornadoes likely with a couple intense tornadoes possible. With the warmth building during the midweek, it will suddenly feel like summertime in the Northeast by Thursday and Friday.

Minneapolis reached 80 degrees on Monday, the first time since September. On Tuesday, the activity moves into the Central Plains. Temperatures stay warm though, with highs still getting into the 70s and 80s.
