Dangerous severe storms will erupt across the Plains and Upper Midwest by mid-afternoon Tuesday. Huge hail, damaging high winds, even isolated tornadoes will occur!

Discussion:

The active spring storm pattern will continue today with severe storms firing initially over parts of the Texas Panhandle and northwest Oklahoma. They’ll quickly build northeast, however, accompanied by destructive winds up to 75 mph, large hail to 2.5 inches, and isolated tornadoes. The severe threat will likely wane in the late evening to overnight hours.
