6:00PM UPDATE: The Severe T-Storm Watch has been cancelled. No further severe weather is expected this evening.
Severe threat is rapidly decreasing for the local area. Parts of the severe thunderstorm watch have been cancelled for counties to our west. Expect this trend to continue with our local area most likely being dropped soon as the most aggressive storm development remains well to the east of the area.
Stronger thunderstorms continue to develop to the northeast of the area. As the front continues to progress eastward additional scattered strong storms are possible in the local area over the next couple of hours.
The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Severe T-Storm Watch Until 10PM CDT.
Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to develop after 3pm ahead of an approaching cold front from the west. Enough moisture and instability exists for a few severe storms late this afternoon with the highest threat being very large hail. Damaging winds are also a secondary threat with these storms.
Make sure and seek shelter and stay away from windows should you be placed under a warning.
