This severe weather update is for April 7, 2013. If you live in the areas mentioned for severe weather below, please stay tuned to local media outlets and i hope you have a great weekend.
Kansas, Western Missouri, Northern Oklahoma
SCALE: 1-3, Low. 4-6, Moderate. >7, High.
WIND: 4/10 (Low To Moderate)
HAIL: 4/10 (Low To Moderate)
TORNADO: 3/10 (Low To Moderate)
Damaging wind gusts over 60 MPH is likely in any heavier cell. These winds can down trees and power lines, triggering power outages.
Large hail up to quarter size (and potentially higher in isolated areas) could occur with the heavier cells.
Any of the heavier cells or supercells are capable of producing isolated tornadoes however the threat is not widespread and odds aren't in favor for violent twisters.
I'll have another analysis late today or early on April 8. Stay safe!
