While our Tropical Storm Research Center does not usually comment on INLAND storm potential this time of the year, we just got word from the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, that by mid week, there could be some high risk tornado outbreaks in the Plains States. This weather set up will produce some thunderstorm potential in Iowa, Illinois, southern Minnesota, Indiana, Ohio and part of Wisconsin Tuesday through Thursday at times, but to the southwest, the storm front will have mid level winds from the northwest and west and high Gulf moisture drawn in from the south. Those air masses will collide, cause directional rotation and form significant possibilities for tornado activity.  Could get 'interesting' in Texas, Oklahoma and the Central Plains by mid week. Monitor your local NWS office for details or use the NWS interactive map link below.  Take care and be safe...
