  • The severe storm threat for Tuesday will be worst in central Kansas eastern Nebraska and Iowa

A almost stationary frontal system will bring daily chances for strong to severe storms across the Central Plains through Wednesday. Thanks to a big pattern change, storm chances are ramping up this week from Oklahoma to IL.

The jet stream pattern will flip from what we've seen during this relatively quiet week and lead to the return of severe weather.

Wednesday, the severe weather threat now covers a very large swath blanketing much of the eastern half of the state. These three things will all become part of our forecast in the days to come which could lead to storms and potentially even severe storms.

This afternoon there's a chance of showers and thunderstorms before 4 p.m., then isolated thunderstorms after 5 p.m. At present, the threat looks a little bit less robust by Thursday, but damaging winds, large hail and brief tornadoes will be likely from Waco, Texas, to Peoria, Illinois.

Stay tuned for the latest and stay weather aware...we'll keep you 4Warned! These storms cold produce some hail, damaging winds and even isolated tornadoes. All severe weather hazards are possible.

Dry weather expected here as severe thunderstorms move over the central plains of Kansas this evening.




No rain fell on Monday but a brief band of storms rolled through the metro on Tuesday morning.

Conditions were ripe for severe weather Tuesday afternoon and evening over much of eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa, forecasters said.

The secondary weather story just might be the weekend forecast for those celebrating Cinco De Mayo.

Scattered to numerous severe thunderstorms are possible from the Upper Midwest to the central Plains.

Localized heavy rainfall is possible as well.
