According to weather forecasts the worst severe weather outbreak so far this year will threaten lives and property across the central United States Wednesday through Thursday.
AccuWeather Meteorologist, Anthony Sagliani says, “the pattern evolving through midweek is a classic precursor to a significant severe weather outbreak. A strong trough will collapse into the West Coast, allowing broad southwesterly flow across the Rockies on Monday and Tuesday.”
According to accuweather.com the latest indications point toward the worst of the outbreak targeting parts of Texas, Oklahoma, eastern half of Kansas, northern Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois and Iowa.
This includes Des Moines, Iowa; Chicago and Springfield, Illinois; Kansas City, St. Louis, Springfield, Missouri; Topeka and Wichita, Kansas; Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Oklahoma; Dallas; Little Rock and Fayetteville, Arkansas; and Shreveport, Louisiana.
