Good Tuesday afternoon! I hope your week is going great. Mine has been pretty good so far, just busy as usual. My son and I are hanging out today but mainly inside due to the scattered showers and thunderstorms. We will see plenty of chances for thunderstorms over the next few days. One batch has been working through over the past few hours. However, most of the afternoon looks pretty good before additional thunderstorms fire again tonight.
Some of these working across northern OK, southern KS and SE KS could be on the strong to severe side with wind and hail late this evening. These will push through the region during the overnight hours tonight. The severe threat shifts a little farther north near KC on Wednesday and into southern Iowa.
However, by Thursday the threat shifts back south into southern and SE KS. Also we will see the severe threat work south in Oklahoma as well. I think Thursday the severe threat will jump up to an elevated threat for Wichita, Tulsa, Joplin metro and NW AR.
On Friday, the main upper level low will kick out into the central plains.
This should produce another elevated threat for the Joplin metro, Tulsa and NW AR.
I will keep you updated through the week
