I have very little change in my thoughts from last evening with regards to severe weather the next few days. May be a bit less of a threat than I first thought for this afternoon/evening across the central Plains into the Upper Midwest; however, severe storms are still expected to develop, especially from northeast Kansas into western Iowa. The main threat with these storms will be damaging hail and wind gusts with a few isolated tornadoes.
Friday's and Saturday's forecasts look nearly identical to my previous thought so no real changes there. One bit of good news, though, is for those of you in the Tennessee Valley, looks like the main threat of storms holds out until later in the evening Saturday into Sunday. Hopefully, this will hold true and you will have the chance to get in those Saturday outdoor plans.
