People in the Southern Plains are being warned about possible tornadoes early next week. Severe Weather is expected next Tuesday, and forecasters are urged those in southern Kansas, Oklahoma and northern Texas to review their tornado safety plans. An additional severe weather alert has been issued for these areas and Missouri later in the week.
According to Bill Bunting, Storm Prediction Center's operations manager, one reason for noting the severe weather forecast so far in advance is so that people are able to prepare for the storm and review emergency information for next week. He also noted that there isn’t a need for concern now, but the need for awareness is necessary as we approach the peak of tornado season.
