U.S. Severe Weather Alerts and Tornado Warnings : Violent, destructive tornadoes possible in central U.S. Tuesday

More tornadoes are possible in the central U.S. on April 26.



The central U.S. was bracing for a big severe weather outbreak Tuesday: Violent, destructive tornadoes were possible in and around cities such as Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Dallas and Wichita, Kan.

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) placed a swath from southern Nebraska to central Kansas and central Oklahoma in a "moderate risk" zone for severe storms.

A moderate risk is the second highest of the five categories SPC uses for possible severe weather, according to weather.com.

Cities such as San Antonio, Austin and Kansas City were all in a "slight" risk area for severe storms Tuesday.

"The storms on Tuesday have the greatest potential to produce numerous tornadoes, including some strong (wedge) tornadoes that could be on the ground for an extended period of time," AccuWeather's Andrew Gagnon said.

Wedge tornadoes are tornadoes that are at least as wide as they are tall, according to AccuWeather, and they are known to cause damage and cover a lot of territory.


                                                                     
 
The threat for violent storms will continue after dark on Tuesday, which will add to the danger, AccuWeather warned.

In addition to the tornado threat, giant hail, damaging winds and drenching rain are also possible.

Additional isolated strong storms could also rattle the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic regions, including Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Cincinnati, but the storms should not be as destructive as those in the central U.S.






Voters going to the polls in primary elections states such as Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania could encounter some heavy rain and a few thunderstorms.

The SPC predicts the possibility of yet another round of potentially severe thunderstorms on Friday for parts of Oklahoma and North Texas.
