    Strong Storms Once More for the High Plains

    Strong storms are expected to rumble across the High Plains again today after an active Friday.

    The Texas Panhandle became the target of violent thunderstorms with damaging winds and hail on Friday.

    The atmosphere is again primed for severe weather this afternoon, but across an area to the north.

    Powerful thunderstorms are expected to erupt later this afternoon from southeastern Colorado, western Kansas, the Oklahoma Panhandle and neighboring parts of the Texas Panhandle.

    The thunderstorms will then press southeastward tonight, reaching Oklahoma City late.

    The main threat from these thunderstorms will be damaging winds and large hail. Similar storms Friday across the Texas Panhandle produced gusts to 60 mph and hail as large as 3 inches.


    A few isolated tornadoes could touch down, but they will be the exception rather than the rule.

    The threat of severe weather will shift east for Sunday to impact parts of Kansas and Missouri with strong storms.
