There could be a major outbreak of severe thunderstorms across the central Plains by mid week. The same system that will head toward us on Friday.
If you will be heading out west this week (Wednesday in particular) here’s some of the cities that have the greatest potential for severe weather:
Oklahoma City, Okla., Tulsa, Okla., Norman, Okla., Broken Arrow, Okla., Joplin, Mo. and Coffeyville, Kan., to name a few.
Dangerous supercell thunderstorms are expected to develop during the early to mid-afternoon hours and continue well into the evening. Tornadoes will be the biggest danger with these storms. While not every storm will produce a tornado, those that do have the possibility to contain long-tracked strong or even violent tornadoes. You will also be hearing about, extremely large hail the size of baseballs or even softballs is also possible across these areas.
This same system will head toward the southeast, including Atlanta, by Friday.
