    ...an Outbreak Of Severe Thunderstorms Producing Very Large Hail And
    Tornadoes Is Expected Over Parts Of The Eastern Portions Of The
    Central And Southern Plains Today And Tonight...

    The Nws Storm Prediction Center In Norman Ok Is Forecasting The
    Development Of Tornadoes...very Large Hail And Damaging Winds Over
    Parts Of The Eastern Portions Of The Central And Southern Plains
    This Afternoon And Tonight.

    The Areas Most Likely To Experience This Activity Include

    Eastern Kansas
    Far Northwest Missouri
    Southeast Nebraska

    Surrounding The High Risk Area...there Is A Moderate Risk Of Severe
    Thunderstorms From Eastern Nebraska...central Kansas...through
    Western Missouri...eastern Oklahoma And Western Arkansas

    A Strong Storm System Now Moving Into The Central Plains Will Move
    Eastward Across The Central And Southern Plains...reaching The
    Mid-mississippi Valley And Mid-south By This Evening. A Surface Low
    Pressure Will Intensify Across Southern Nebraska This Afternoon. To
    The South Of The Low...a Dryline Will Strengthen And Move Eastward
    Into The Eastern Portions Of The Central/southern Plains. The Strong
    Westerly Winds Atop The Southerly Winds At The Surface Will Be
    Favorable For Organized Severe Storms Including Supercells.

    Strong To Severe Thunderstorms Are Ongoing Across The Ozarks And Mid
    Mississippi Valley. The Main Threat With These Initial Storms Will
    Be Large Hail And Damaging Winds.

    Additional Thunderstorm Initiation Will Take Place In Two Main
    Areas. One Focus For Thunderstorms Will Be Along The Dryline From
    Central Nebraska As Far South As Texas Between 100-400 Pm Cdt. Very
    Large Hail...damaging Winds And Tornadoes Will Be Possible With
    These Storms. The Highest Potential For Strong Tornadoes Should
    Exist Along And Northeast Of The Surface Low Track In Nebraska.

    A Secondary Area Of Thunderstorm Development Will Occur Across
    Central And Eastern Oklahoma...and Southeast Kansas This Afternoon.
    These Storms Will Develop Along The Strongest Portion Of The
    Dryline...and Along The Nose Of The Strong Jet Stream Aloft. These
    Storms Will Tend To Remain As Discrete Supercell Storms As They Move
    Into Southwest Missouri And Northern/western Parts Of Arkansas
    During The Evening. Strong Tornadoes Will Be Possible Along With
    Very Large Hail And Damaging Wind Gusts. The Severe Threat Will
    Likely Persist Overnight Into The Mid-mississippi Valley And
    Mid-south.

    This Is Potentially A Very Dangerous Situation. Those In The
    Threatened Area Are Urged To Review Severe Weather Safety Rules And
    To Listen To Radio...television...and Noaa Weather Radio For
    Possible Watches...warnings...and Statements Later Today.

    Thanks DK. It's going to start with us tonight.

    Possible blizzard and extremely high wind warnings

    I will need to make sure to "batten down the hatches" tonight with the livestock. One mare is ready to foal any day. They usually do it during low pressure storms. She'll go to the barn this evening. The calves we are bottle feeding are in there now. It gets pretty nasty out here with these high winds. It's well known that I70 gets closed down during blizzards and dust storms.

    We drove home yesterday from Denver and could see a massive dust storm near home. Fortunately, by the time we arrived the wind had just died down and the dirt quit blowing.

    Everyone in the affected areas, please take care of the weather.
