  • Larry's Look: Spring showers mark start of thunderstorm season

It is Severe Summer Weather Awareness week in North Dakota, a week held by states nationally as the weather heats up.

"The atmospheric conditions will be favorable for any of the storms to become strong to severe with damaging winds and large hail the main concern, with a small potential for tornadoes", forecasters said.

Today other than a few non severe storms this morning we will be mostly cloudy today with highs in the upper 70s-mid 80s. The numbers really start to pick up in May and peaking in June. A few of these storms could be strong to severe.

You'll often hear about a severe weather watch or warning, this can be tricky but a watch is issued before an event will happen, essentially you are watching for the upcoming warning.

The next round of storms look to be more intense, with a low chance for severe weather.

A layer of warm air aloft (the CAP) is expected to hold for most of the day across eastern OK while storms attempt to develop later this afternoon near the dry line across far western OK.

Thunderstorms will likely linger into Thursday night across parts of E TX, SE OK and SW AR north of I-30.

Wednesday night: A 90 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, low around 59. The storms are expected to weaken as they approach the region which should limit the overall severe weather risk, though the strongest storms may produce some hail and gusty winds.

Now is a good time to think about your severe weather plan and talk about it with your family. Tonight's storms bring the greatest threat for damaging winds, with large hail possible. This round will likely move in near midnight Thursday, and will be exiting by sunrise Thursday.

While things have been pretty scattered through TV5-Wake Up, another more widespread round of showers is moving in from the west.

We should clear and dry out later Friday morning, making for a nice weekend. The low will be around 66 with a south wind of 9 to 11 miles per hour, gusting as high as 22 miles per hour.
