Stay Weather Aware: NWS Issues Advisory for Southern Plains Next Week

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — While Texans try to dry out from flooding rains, forecasters are telling people in the Southern Plains to review their tornado safety plans ahead of severe weather expected next week. The Storm Prediction Center says tornadoes are possible in southern Kansas, Oklahoma and northern Texas next Tuesday, with additional severe weather for those areas and Missouri later in the week. SPC operations manager Bill Bunting says one reason for noting the troubling forecast six days out is that people should review where they will obtain emergency information next week. Bunting said there isn't a need to be alarmed now, but the need for awareness is growing as the nation's midsection approaches its peak tornado season. Next week marks five years since a tornado outbreak across the South killed 316 people.
