Cold spring keeps severe weather in check

Larry's Look: Spring showers mark start of thunderstorm season

The Storm Prediction Center has the extreme northwestern parts of the ArkLaTex under a marginal to slight risk of severe storms with high wind gusts and marginal hail the main threat. But that storm activity was expected to dissipate by the late morning hours.

Conditions were ripe for severe weather Tuesday afternoon and evening over much of eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa, forecasters said. Severe storms on Monday do pose a chance to bring that number up, however that is still not enough to take the area out of the current drought.

Wednesday night: A 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. The highest risk for tornadoes is in the enhanced risk region from Salina, Kansas, to Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska. Today's topic is severe weather terms and definitions. The rest of the week will also stick to the warm-weather trend.

A warm and humid Wednesday is expected. Last May was particularly active with 73 severe thunderstorm warnings issued and just a few less than that in June.

Before leaving, PM Modi reciprocated by inviting Xi to India for a similar informal summit next year. They recognised terrorism as common threat and committed to cooperate further on counter terrorism.

Lingering storms will exit early Wednesday morning leaving us with partly cloudy skies. These storms are capable of producing very large hail and damaging wind. A powerful upper air trough located now to our west will slowly move eastward today with strong jet stream level winds rounding the base of the trough later today and ejecting into the SW Kansas into the high plains.

Thursday Day: Dryline storms develop in East Oklahoma and move into our area.

While no one hopes severe weather hits, area farmers say precipitation would be welcome, despite the short time they've been able to be in the field so far this spring. Here is the latest Severe Weather Outlook, with wind and hail the primary threats.
