A severe weather outbreak gearing up to hammer the country’s midsection on Tuesday could spawn sustained, muscular tornadoes as well as softball-size hail showers, say forecasters, who also warned of additional rounds of storms to follow.
The day is expected to start out warm, if a bit windy, for a large swath of the Plains, from southern Texas up to Nebraska. By late afternoon, though, it could turn scary quickly and remain that way until after dark, meteorologists say. Several major cities — including Dallas, Oklahoma City, Wichita, Kan., and Kansas City — lie in the storms’ potential path, putting lives and property in danger.
