National Emergency As Massive Weather Front Moves In


As a sequence of disturbances moves through the country, rounds of severe storms with massive hail, damaging winds, and the potential of a few tornadoes will continue into the workweek.

According to the National Weather Service, large hail, ranging in size from ping pong balls to tennis balls, fell in western areas of Texas on Sunday. Hailstones shattered windows and windshields around the room.

The stones have a diameter of more than 2.5 inches. Winds gusted to as high as 80 miles per hour. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, a storm dropped 3-4 inches of rain near Abilene in just a few hours.

According to the National Weather Service, additional severe thunderstorms are possible in regions of North Texas, Oklahoma, and south-central and southeastern Kansas on Monday afternoon and evening. This hazard stretches as far as Missouri and northern Arkansas, among other places.
Large hail, destructive wind gusts, and even a few tornadoes are possible.

As a cold front moves eastward, it will traverse portions of the Mississippi and Ohio Valleys and the central Great Lakes, beginning on Tuesday. The possibility of isolated severe storms ahead of the front Tuesday afternoon from Lower Michigan southward into sections of the Ohio Valley cannot be ruled out.

Then, a new upper-level disturbance will develop over the central United States of America by Wednesday.

On Wednesday afternoon and evening, severe thunderstorms might develop along and east of a dryline that would run from North Texas northward into Oklahoma and southern Kansas. In certain places, large hail, destructive wind gusts, and even a few tornadoes are all conceivable occurrences in certain places.
