Strong tornadoes possible in central U.S.; warmup arrives on East Coast

The warm weather will move into the East on Tuesday afternoon

Another round will bring an increased threat of severe weather, including tornadoes, to more heavily populated areas on Tuesday. The large enhanced risk region extends from Texas to Missouri and includes major cities such as Oklahoma City; Wichita, Kansas; and Kansas City, Missouri. Temperatures from the Midwest to much of the Northeast will be almost 10 to 15 degrees above average.

Another round of severe weather is possible for Wednesday, but the threat becomes more widespread across northeast Kansas. We are monitoring the risk for severe weather starting this evening and lasting through Thursday evening where all modes of severe weather are possible. Currently, a slight risk extends through much of central Texas all the way to southern Wisconsin, including Dallas; Des Moines, Iowa; and Milwaukee.

May is essentially considered the start of severe weather season for Colorado. On Tuesday, the activity moves into the Central Plains.

Strong thunderstorms may try forming late tomorrow afternoon or evening, posing a threat for very large hail, strong winds, and perhaps a tornado. You'll want to monitor conditions closely with us online, on air and via the Storm Team 12 app Tuesday, but the more expanded threat and the first mention of isolated tornado chances come Wednesday. While some details remain uncertain, it appears increasing likely that a significant tornado threat will exist in this region by midweek. Temperatures are on the rise already on Sunday morning for the entire Northern Plains, with temperatures nearing 80 degrees or higher all the way to North Dakota. With the warmth building during the midweek, it will suddenly feel like summertime in the Northeast by Thursday and Friday. Temperatures stay warm though, with highs still getting into the 70s and 80s.
