WICHITA, Kansas — A large section of the Midwest and South are at risk for strong tornadoes, severe thunderstorms and flash flooding this weekend.
The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., on Thursday advised residents to be aware that dangerous weather is on the way and to make sure that they can receive weather warnings during their weekend activities.
“Our run of relatively quiet weather may be about to come to an end,” Bill Bunting, operations chief for the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Okla., said.
Strong upper-level winds are forecast to move in from the west and merge with moist air moving north from the Gulf of Mexico, creating conditions that are favorable for storm development.
Large hail and rain of up to several inches are also expected.
The storms are forecast to start Saturday from Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas and move eastward through Monday.
The KSN Storm Track 3 Weather Team will continue monitor this situation through the weekend and will bring accurate information so you can keep your family safe.
