Severe Weather Threat Shifts East of Oklahoma City
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – More severe weather is expected across the middle part of the country. The greatest area of concern today will be from Dallas to Little Rock including southeast Oklahoma and northwest Louisiana. More violent weather with damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes are likely.
Western Mass. Severe Weather Threat: A back door cold front sliding in off the Atlantic will drift towards western Mass then stall across Worcester County. This will keep us in the warm, muggy air mass this afternoon. This front will become the focal point for some thunderstorm activity. We are not expecting a severe weather out break however we could see a couple of strong to perhaps severe storms later this afternoon. Severe weather will be the exception and not the rule. The best chance for any shower or thunderstorm activity will mostly likely be from 3 pm to 9 pm this afternoon/evening. Anyone of these storms could produce heavy rain, small hail and gusty winds. Be sure to head inside if you clouds building. Don’t cancel the outdoor plans but be prepared to bring things inside in short notice.
