Omaha-metro area braces for first severe weather of the season

First tornado of 2018 in Oklahoma reported

Meanwhile, confidence is increasing for severe weather across most of eastern Kansas, including the KVOE listening area, for Wednesday. However, the quiet weather will turn more turbulent this week as a system moving through the Northwest this morning heads toward the central U.S.in the coming days. Damaging winds, large hail and tornadoes are possible throughout this region today.

The severe threat begins to ramp up significantly Tuesday.

Tuesday the warmth finally moves into the Northeast. Confidence is not quite as high for possible severe weather activity Thursday, although storms could form near Emporia and push to the east starting by early afternoon.

Walmart on edge of United Kingdom market: Sainsbury and Asda in merger talks
One source close to Wal-Mart said the merger would allow the two companies to invest in providing more products at lower prices. It is understood that any investigation by the CMA would only be announced once an intention to merge was formally unveiled.

May is essentially considered the start of severe weather season for Colorado. At present, the threat looks a little bit less robust by Thursday, but damaging winds, large hail and brief tornadoes will be likely from Waco, Texas, to Peoria, Illinois.

Temperatures on Monday will be up to 20 degrees above normal for the Upper Midwest and Plains with temperatures near 80 degrees possible in Minneapolis. From Denver to North Platte, Nebraska to Rapid City, South Dakota, temperatures are almost 10 to 15 degrees above average for this time of the year. Temperatures in parts of the Great Lakes, Midwest, and mid-Atlantic - including Chicago, Detroit, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia - will be around 10 degrees above average.

North Dakota recognizes this week as Severe Summer Weather Awareness Week - a reminder that severe weather is not far away. The temperatures could be nearly 90 degrees for parts of the I-95 corridor. Temperatures stay warm though, with highs still getting into the 70s and 80s. This has the potential to be the warmest air mass this region has seen since September of past year.
