These storms will likely get here by this morning and midday and continue the threat for severe weather. A few strong to severe storms may still be possible early this morning with wind and hail the main threats. These are NOT associated with severe thunderstorms, but could still cause damage.
Before a storm strikes you want to develop a safety plan that you and your family can use to protect yourselves in the event of a severe storm.
The weather service forecasts the potential for more severe weather Thursday, with much of central Oklahoma facing a marginal risk and southeast Oklahoma a slight risk. With the current trends in place though, it wouldn't be surprising to see all locations just see non severe storms through the night, as the greatest energy looks to be along the Missouri/Iowa border. "Forecasts continue to show the most favorable area for rain and thunderstorms will be across the Hill Country with lower totals for areas to the east of Interstate 35".
From southeastern Nebraska to northwestern IL, the threats may be more from flash flooding, strong wind gusts and hail but a couple of tornadoes can not be ruled out. High Wind Warning is in effect until 6 AM for the SGF Metro and surrounding counties as gusts to 60-70 miles per hour are expected. However, plenty of wind shear will be in place and an isolated rotating storm cannot be completely ruled out.
