National Weather Service advising area to be "weather aware" on Tuesday

Larry's Look: Spring showers mark start of thunderstorm season

The rain chance will die down through the morning with stronger storms starting for this afternoon.

A warm and humid Wednesday is expected.

The less common form of severe weather that we can see is a tornado, which is a violently rotating column of air that reaches contact with the ground and is attached to the cloud base above. Another round of storms, some of which could easily become severe, is possible along and south of I-80 yet again Wednesday evening.

The strong to severe storms could develop in northeast Nebraska Monday evening as the front moves into the area. At present, the threat looks a little bit less robust by Thursday, but damaging winds, large hail and brief tornadoes will be likely from Waco, Texas, to Peoria, Illinois.

He says that as severe weather season approaches, it's important for folks to know the difference between watches and warnings. Large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes are all in play with any storms that develop.

Now is the time to prepare for severe weather later today.

Despite the overnight hours, the threat for severe weather would remain into early Thursday morning before storms gradually weaken as the upper level jet streak winds tend to accelerate away from the area.

Spring-like temperatures have arrived in the Kansas City area and are bringing chances for severe weather with them.

The National Weather Service in Grand Forks past year issued 34 separate tornado warnings and 144 severe thunderstorm warnings in its 35-county coverage area. Stay with Your Local Weather Authority for future updates! Southwest Iowa in particular is under an enhanced risk of severe weather with a slight risk extending up through Central Iowa.

Localized heavy rainfall is possible as well. Widely scattered severe storms are also expected from west Texas into the Panhandle.
