Midwest Tornadoes: Region Braces for Fourth Day of Severe Weather

Storms are likely mid week

"Storms today are forecast to be more linear in nature, which will lead to more damaging winds than tornadoes".

All thunderstorms that occur are unsafe, whether they are classified as severe or not and that is because of the lightning that they produce. Severe weather is possible.

The entire I-30 corridor and points north are under a Slight Risk of severe weather Thursday afternoon and evening.

There are two severe thunderstorm watches, one in Arkansas, including Little Rock, and one the four corners of Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas and Iowa, including Des Moines and Kansas City.

A tornado watch was issued for western and central Oklahoma early Wednesday afternoon as storms began firing up in the Texas Panhandle and continued to track east. Here's today's severe weather reports.including a 67 miles per hour wind gust at Midway Airport in Chicago - several other reports of wind damage and hail in the Chicago area. Highs reach the 70s, and it'll feel a touch humid.




The eastern Ohio Valley through the Northeast will have a risk for thunderstorms with damaging wind gusts on Friday, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Jake Sojda.

The Weather Alert Day has been allowed to expire for Mid-Missouri, as the threat for severe weather has greatly diminished here in the region. If this trend continues, then Shreveport-Bossier and the rest of the I-20 corridor's rain chances will have to be increased.

That should help to bring sunny skies with highs near 60 degrees.

Saturday night, it will be partly cloudy with a low of 58 and a south southwest wind of 3 to 6 miles per hour, according to the weather service. Wind: SW/NW 10-15. Low: 53.

"Thunderstorms and significant rain are still in the forecast Thursday (May 3) through Saturday (May 5) when a series of low-pressure troughs and a cold front move across the state", according to LCRA meteorologist Bob Rose.
