We will be keeping a close eye on the weather Wednesday afternoon (5/11). This is due to a warm front that will lift to the north during the morning hours Wednesday, which will help trigger off severe thunderstorms by Wednesday afternoon.

The potential for large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes will all be possible to the east of interstate 35, and south of interstate 80. Depending on how far north the warm front makes it, will have an impact on who will have a chance of severe weather, and who will not. The latest indications are that the warm front may move further north than interstate 80, which would extend the threat further to the north.

Once again, the potential exists for all modes of severe weather Wednesday. Hail will have the potential to be golf ball size and larger Wednesday afternoon.

We will have a chase team deployed and will stream live if it is warranted. Continue to follow us for the very latest updates.
