Severe weather will move into parts of the south-central United States Wednesday afternoon and evening, bringing the possibility of isolated tornadoes to the region.
The storm system will stretch from Nebraska down through west-central Texas, bringing violent thunderstorms, damaging winds and even large hail to the area, in addition to the tornado threat.
During the height of the storm, in the late-afternoon and early-evening hours, tornado formation is most likely. As the storm continues into the late evening hours, the threat for tornadoes will decrease.
Cities in the path of the severe weather in the late afternoon include Dodge City and Russell, Kan.; North Platte, McCook and Grand Island, Neb.; Gage and Clinton, Okla.; and Amarillo, Childress, Abilene, San Angelo and Del Rio, Texas.
As the storm moves through the Plains in the evening, cities at risk for a tornado include Lincoln, Neb., Wichita, Kan., Wichita Falls, Texas, and Oklahoma City.
