A severe weather outbreak is becoming likely across the local area on Thursday. ALL MODES of severe weather will be possible. Storms are expected to develop to our west early afternoon and impact the local area during the evening and early overnight. From the early long range models this appears to be a large event that will take place. Giant hail is mentioned by the SPC office, I would not be surprised to see larger than 3 inch (Large Apple to Softball) size hail for some, 2 1/2 inch (Tennis Ball) for sure. Winds will also be a concern with gusts over 70 mph being possible, and yes tornadoes! The main target zone is SEKS, NEOK and SWMO as this event will approach the area during prime conditions.
I will have much more tonight in an update video.
