Severe weather outbreak predicted in Oklahoma, Kansas

And according to initial reports, there were between roughly 350 and 500 severe weather reports in all. Gusty south winds will help you cool off though, which is nice, but gusty winds can also increase symptoms if you are an allergy sufferer. Tree limbs were downed and damaged a home.

The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings for McIntosh and Pittsburg counties, each until 10:30 p.m.

CHICAGO (AP) - Two people died and dozens were injured when tornadoes flattened a mobile home park in Wisconsin and a housing subdivision in Oklahoma during powerful spring storms that battered an area from the South Plains of Texas to the Great Lakes. The low will be around 60 with an east wind of 8 to 11 miles per hour.

In the Tulsa area, severe storms are expected Thursday night and early Friday morning. Heitkamp says "heat bursts" are impossible to warn of beforehand. "Those thunderstorms will use that energy to its fullest potential".

A Tornado Watch remains in effect for the WREX viewing area.

There is an enhanced risk of potentially risky weather across central Oklahoma after 4 p.m.

The storm knocked out telephone service into and out of the city.




The storms are expected to reach the Kansas City area between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m.

On Saturday, the risk of flooding will continue over parts of Texas but will press eastward across the middle and lower MS valleys, along with the potential for gusty and perhaps locally severe thunderstorms. These storms have the potential to produce heavy rainfall, especially on Saturday, which may lead to localized instances of flash flooding.

"The concern is how saturated the soil will already be by Friday", Kern said. She said initial reports were that it was more than 400 feet (120 meters) wide, and that it was "very fortunate" that it didn't strike in a more populated area. "Luckily, we had some room in our waterways".

Through Friday evening, the Mile High City expects two to six inches, though the Weather Service notes that eight to 12 is more likely west of the city near the foothills. Scattered thunderstorms will continue along and north of the front through the weekend with the best chances occurring on Saturday.

Tue: High: 66 Low: 50 Mostly cloudy; p.m. storms.

A strengthening storm system ejecting eastward into the Plains will serve as the trigger for these storms.

The only dry part of the week looks to fall during the day on Thursday, Kern said. "It might be one of your only chances this week". OPPD's website reported early today that fewer than 675 customers were without power, including about 350 in Douglas County. Golf ball to baseball sized hail, damaging winds up to 75 miles per hour and flood producing heavy rain are expected. Total rainfall amounts will be at least 1 inch in most areas and up to 4 inches in a few spots.
