Severe Weather Tonight and Tomorrow

As I type this blog at 8:35 AM, there are severe storms in the Kansas City area. We will have to track these storms all day until they arrive in Region 8 this evneing. Another round of storms comes after midnight... and maybe another tomorrow afternoon. Here are the storms that are ongoing and the track they will likely take today:
The storms in Kansas City have had some hail! Here are the most likely places to have seen hail over the past hour:

Here are some bullet points about the next 36 hours:

  • The storms in the Kansas City area will be here this evening, but will be weakening as the move into Region 8 (I hope). These storms will have some gusty winds and maybe some hail.
  • Severe storms will develop in the southern plains this evening and a severe weather outbreak is possible in Oklahoma and Kansas. These storms will weaken and move into Region 8 between midnight and daybreak. Even though they are weakening, they could be severe.
  •  If the atmosphere can recover from the storms in the morning, we may see an other round in the afternoon. IF the storms in the afternoon develop, they could be severe.
Here's the severe weather threat level today:

Here are the individual severe weather probabilities from the Storm Prediction Center for today:
