(KCBD) - A First Alert Weather Day has been designated for the remainder of today due to the potential for severe storms and heavy rainfall on the south plains. Thunderstorms are likely across the region later today and continuing into early Wednesday.
Some storms will have the potential to produce large hail, high winds and heavy rainfall. There is also a slight risk of a few storms capable of producing tornadoes. The greatest severe weather threat is generally along the eastern south plains and in the southern portion of the region. The strongest storms will be likely from Paducah southwest to the south of Lubbock to near Seminole and areas south and east.
However, storms are possible across all of the area and the local flood threat is for most of the south plains.
Isolated storms will develop late afternoon with added severe storm development in the early evening through midnight and later.
