Omaha-metro area braces for first severe weather of the season

After 6pm and into the evening and overnight the area of storms will move east and mainly affect the far northern tiered counties of Kansas but certainly isolated storms are possible elsewhere in an isolated nature. The area stretches from southwest Iowa, central Kansas and southeast Nebraska. However, the quiet weather will turn more turbulent this week as a system moving through the Northwest this morning heads toward the central U.S.in the coming days.

After enjoying about a little more than a week of handsome spring weather, the Omaha-metro area braced for its first bout of severe weather, projected to roll into the area late Tuesday afternoon. It does look fairly low for Central Illinois Wednesday, as most of the activity will be to our west. Thursday, however, does look like a better chance for stronger storms.

There's a lesser risk for strong to severe storms on Thursday, but the chance is still there. Tornadoes, very large hail, and damaging winds are anticipated. While damaging winds and large hail are the main threat, tornadoes remain possible.

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

Tuesday the warmth finally moves into the Northeast.

Primary threats include a few tornadoes likely with a couple intense tornadoes possible.

Minneapolis reached 80 degrees on Monday, the first time since September.

Ahead of the severe weather it will suddenly feel like summer for the Midwest and Northeast. This has the potential to be the warmest air mass this region has seen since September of a year ago. By the end of this week, temperatures in the entire I-95 region will be nearing the upper 80s - with 90-degree readings possible locally.
