The initial threat will be west of Tulsa, but storms may arrive later that evening with a continued threat of strong to severe storms re-firing on Friday. This could lead to several shots of rain and severe weather chances.
The primary hazards will be damaging wind gusts and large hail. South wind 10 to 20 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 30 miles per hour.
Storms are a little more likely Monday night.
Stay weather aware! There are more storm chances for Thursday through Saturday.
A separate area of severe thunderstorms can develop along the northern edge of building warmth from eastern South Dakota through southern Minnesota, northern Iowa and into central Wisconsin from late Monday to Monday night.
Some of these storms could be strong. Overnight lows are expected to drop off into the upper 50s, leading into Mother's Day.More news: Navy identifies SEAL killed in raid in Somalia
Skies will be mostly to partly sunny.
Tomorrow there is a small chance of a pop up shower in the morning again mainly toward north-central Kansas but better chances exist later in the afternoon.
The storms will last into Wednesday morning before diminishing by the afternoon with highs around 80°.
We dry out on Wednesday before the chance for storms return to end the work week and start the weekend. Highs are expected to top out in the 80s for much of the week ahead, before we cool back down into the 70s leading into next weekend.
