Severe storms, tornadoes expected across central, southern U.S.

Published on : Wednesday, March 18, 2020

Severe thunderstorms, including the possibility of tornadoes, are expected to erupt over portions of the central and southern U.S. on Wednesday and Thursday, forecasters warn.

 

While much of Wednesday will be storm-free, a round of severe storms is likely in Texas and Oklahoma after sunset, AccuWeather said. Storms “will threaten areas from Amarillo to Midland with the full spectrum of severe weather Wednesday evening,” according to AccuWeather meteorologist Kyle Elliott.

 

This includes strong winds, large hail and a few tornadoes, the Storm Prediction Centre said.

 

Later Wednesday night, the storms could reach Oklahoma City and the western suburbs of Dallas before weakening Thursday morning, AccuWeather said.

 

Localised flash flooding could also occur Wednesday and Wednesday night from parts of northern Texas and Oklahoma north-eastward to the Ohio Valley, the Weather Channel predicted.

 

On Thursday, yet another round of severe weather is expected from eastern Texas, eastern Oklahoma and Arkansas to Missouri, Illinois, southern Iowa and eastern Nebraska.

 

“Thursday poses the greatest risk of tornadoes of the entire multiple-day severe weather risk this week,” according to AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. Cities in the line of fire Thursday include Dallas, St. Louis, Chicago and Memphis.

 

The severe weather is part of the same storm system that’s forecast to bring blizzard conditions to portions of Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska and South Dakota on Thursday.
