At least 39 tornadoes rolled through sections of the south and central U.S. on Wednesday from Texas to Nebraska. Widespread damage occurred with the hardest hit area around Oklahoma City where one person was killed and at least 15 injured.
Unfortunately, another round of severe weather is likely on Friday with some of the same areas under the highest risk. Southern parts of Kansas, western and central Oklahoma and northwest Texas are in a Moderate Risk for severe weather on Friday, including large hail, damaging winds and possibly long track tornadoes.
The forecast map for Friday evening shows a storm system in the Texas Panhandle with a stationary front to the northeast. Thunderstorms are expected to form by the afternoon and continue into the evening. The weather conditions will change very little on Saturday, and the same areas will likely see more severe weather. As the system track to the northeast over the weekend, it is possible for West Michigan to see some stronger storms by Monday.
