Moderate risk for severe weather extends to Kansas border

The Storm Prediction Center has upgraded the risk for severe weather Wednesday to moderate for a chunk of northern Oklahoma extending along the Kansas border.

While the atmospheric set-up favors the formation of storm clusters and broken lines of storms, a few isolated supercell thunderstorms could develop and produce a tornado in the moderate zone, according to a statement issued by the SPC.

Residents of southeast Kansas counties along the Oklahoma border should pay close attention to conditions and be prepared to take shelter if necessary. The Kansas threat is most likely later this evening, according to the SPC.
