Severe thunderstorms likely to return today to Upstate NY

After a wild night of weather with multiple tornadoes spotted in Northeast Iowa, the Quad Cities is not out of the woods yet with more storms in the forecast for Thursday evening.

All of mid-Missouri has been decreased to a slight threat for severe weather.

Combined with a push of cool air, the building heat and humidity will provide plenty of fuel for these storms to be more risky than the average summertime thunderstorm.

An enhanced risk means the SPC believes numerous severe storms are possible. This still could change but I would recommend start thinking about a Plan B for those grilling, boating, fireworks plans if the model indicating storms all day and evening pans out.

The National Weather Service says large hail is the biggest threat today, with damaging winds second.


Winds will stay strong out of the south at 20 to 30 miles per hour.

According to a broadcast report to the National Weather Service, more than one-thousand customers lost power in Scottsbluff, with several trees snapped in half during strong storms.

High winds from severe storms did some damage in parts of southwest and western Nebraska, yesterday. A surface upslope regime will be in place across portions of the High Plains throughout the day as easterly low-level flow develops on the southern periphery of a weak surface ridge centered over northwestern Nebraska. The threat is expected to be slightly more widespread in areas of northeastern Colorado than farther north as instability should be limited with northward extent.

We will have a break Saturday afternoon and scattered storms will form Sunday.
