Damaging winds greater than 60 mph, large hail and tornadoes are possible with the strongest thunderstorms that develop.

The greatest risk for tornadoes is expected from north of Dallas, Texas, and Oklahoma to central Missouri, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Brian Edwards.

The most violent storms will ignite during the afternoon and evening hours as daytime heating causes instability. Plenty of humid air will be in place to fuel the severe storms.
