Wedge Tornadoes, Hail, Severe Weather Slamming Central United States, Oklahoma, Kansas

More waves of storms are likely to arrive on Wednesday between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. some of which could be severe

A lot of cloud cover across the area has limited the opportunity to help "recharge" the atmosphere after our morning cluster of storms.

The strongest storms that develop this afternoon will be capable of producing large hail and damaging winds. These are NOT associated with severe thunderstorms, but could still cause damage.

Additional storms will be possible next week.

2-Slight (yellow) - Slight risk - An area of organized severe storms, which is not widespread in coverage with varying levels of intensity.

That moderate risk was advised for the area covering central Kansas to northwest Montana, according to the Storm Prediction Center.

A tornado watch was issued for western and central Oklahoma early Wednesday afternoon as storms began firing up in the Texas Panhandle and continued to track east.

AccuWeather reports damaging thunderstorms and strong winds will rattle the northeastern United States into Friday evening.

The storm was expected to damage roofs, siding and trees with 60 miles per hour wind gusts and residents were are advised to move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a building for safety. There were at least 218 storm reports Wednesday alone, as parts of Oklahoma saw winds in excess of 100 miles per hour.

The Weather Alert Day has been allowed to expire for Mid-Missouri, as the threat for severe weather has greatly diminished here in the region.

Tomorrow night: Clear. Wind: S 10-20; gusty.

Sunday, the high will be near 79 with partly sunny skies and a west wind of 6 to 9 miles per hour becoming north in the afternoon, the weather service said.

Today: Mostly to partly cloudy, breezy, warm.

Tuesday, it will be partly sunny with a high near 78, the weather service said. Conditions look to stay rather quiet aside from an isolated shower chance on Sunday and yet again on Tuesday with highs remaining in the 60s and 70s.
