May Marks The Start Of Severe Weather Season In Colorado

02 May 2018, 01:49 | Colleen Roy

Storm chasers, get ready: The first severe weather outbreak of 2018 begins Tuesday

Severe storms possible this afternoon in North Iowa

The watch area stretches from west of Dodge City and just east of Hill City to just east of Manhattan and Salina. Some sub severe storms could still hang out over areas north of I-70 and closer to the Kansas-Nebraska border, through the early overnight hours. Temperatures from the Midwest to much of the Northeast will be almost 10 to 15 degrees above average.

After enjoying about a little more than a week of lovely spring weather, the Omaha-metro area braced for its first bout of severe weather, projected to roll into the area late Tuesday afternoon.

This week is severe weather awareness week and each day this week we will highlight some important information regarding severe weather and today's topic is severe thunderstorms.

There's a lesser risk for strong to severe storms on Thursday, but the chance is still there.

An active jet stream is setting up an active storm pattern that will move over the US heartland and produce multiple days of severe weather starting Monday and continuing through Wednesday. On Tuesday, the activity moves into the Central Plains.




May is essentially considered the start of severe weather season for Colorado.

Damaging winds, large hail and strong tornadoes will be likely. At present, the threat looks a little bit less robust by Thursday, but damaging winds, large hail and brief tornadoes will be likely from Waco, Texas, to Peoria, Illinois.

Meanwhile, east of the severe storms, very warm air is surging into the Midwest and Northeast. Temperatures are on the rise already on Sunday morning for the entire Northern Plains, with temperatures nearing 80 degrees or higher all the way to North Dakota.

Record highs are possible in the Northeast by the end of the week.
