There is the potential for a damaging and dangerous severe weather outbreak to unfold Tuesday and continue into Wednesday over part of the central United States. Families, individuals and emergency managers should review severe weather safety plans at this time. The pattern unfolding warrants communities to be prepared ahead of the situation. “All modes of severe weather are likely, including tornadoes, large hail and damaging winds,” according to

AccuWeather Assistant Director of Storm Warning Services Andrew Gagnon. “Of the two days, Tuesday has the greatest potential to produce numerous tornadoes, including some strong [wedge] tornadoes that could be on the ground for an extended period of time,” Gagnon said. At this time, the area at greatest risk for violent storms on Tuesday is forecast to extend from southern and centralTexas to a large part of Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. However, the area could change somewhat, depending on the track of a storm that will move out of the Rockies on Monday night. FULL REPORT
