Active week for severe weather in the Plains

Severe weather is expected every day this week in the Plains as several shortwaves work into the central U.S. and the large-scale trough pushes eastward. While some days could have problems with instability and capping, the wind profile will be at least somewhat favorable for rotating storms and severe weather in the Plains.

Here’s the SPC maps highlighting the greatest severe weather risk areas through Saturday, with the threat expected to continue into early next week.
