More Severe Weather Across Plains Sunday

More severe weather is in store for the Plains on Sunday in the wake of a day with more than 200 reports of severe weather.

The area that will be affected by this severe weather will stretch from South Dakota to Texas, just east of where severe weather was seen on Saturday.

Storms will begin to develop on Sunday afternoon and will continue into the evening bringing the threat of heavy downpours, damaging wind gusts, large hail and even tornadoes.

Some of these thunderstorms may continue to strengthen after initial development and become long-lived supercells.

The threat for tornadoes will grow in the late afternoon and evening hours as thunderstorms develop and strengthen. The area that will be at the greatest risk for tornadoes includes central Oklahoma and eastern Kansas; although tornadoes may still develop elsewhere in the area outlined above.

Heavy downpours from these storms can lead to localized flash flooding, especially in low-lying areas and areas with poor drainage. Heavy rain in the northern Plains will also lead to a "Renewed River Flood Threat".

Damaging wind gusts up to 70 mph may be strong enough to blow over trees and power lines which can cause power outages and property damage.

The threat for severe weather will continue into early next week with the potential for severe storms from Oklahoma into Minnesota.

These storms will bring the continued threat of large hail, strong wind gusts and tornadoes into Monday.
