Tornadoes Possible in Oklahoma and Texas Late This Afternoon and Evening

The first widespread severe weather event of the 2009 U.S. severe weather season is unfolding, and it looks to be a dangerous situation for some.

Scattered supercell thunderstorms with possible tornadoes will erupt late this afternoon and evening across central and eastern Oklahoma into north Texas. These storms will move quickly east and northeast and eventually form into a squall line of severe storms that produces a lot of damaging wind across Missouri, Arkansas and parts of Louisiana into early Wednesday morning.

On Wednesday and Wednesday night, the conditions are becoming more favorable for severe storms across the Southeast that could not only produce damaging wind, but also some tornadoes. The line of storms that rolls into the region from the west will weaken, but then re-form and re-intensify Wedednesday afternoon and evening. These storms will not only be line segments, but also more discrete supercells with a threat for tornadoes and damaging winds.

Everyone from the eastern Plains eastward across the MO, MS, TN and OH Valley and Southeast, should pay especially close attention to the weather forecast today through Wednesday night, and be ready to take appropriate action should severe weather threaten.
