Severe weather continues to erupt across parts of the southern Plains and Deep South. The worst of the severe weather is currently across eastern Colorado where there have already been reports of tornadoes.
The threat for tornadoes through Sunday evening will remain highest across the central and southern High Plains. Otherwise, the strongest thunderstorms across the High Plains and from Texas to Alabama and the Florida Panhandle will produce damaging winds, hail and flooding downpours.
Later Sunday evening as a storm emerges from the Rockies, the violent thunderstorms from eastern Colorado and those that erupt in northeastern New Mexico will drop southeastward into western Texas and far western Oklahoma with damaging winds, hail and flooding downpours. During the overnight hours, this strong complex of thunderstorms will continue to press to central Texas with powerful winds and heavy rain.
The severe thunderstorms from eastern Colorado will also press into western Kansas, while parts of western Nebraska will see heavy rain.
