NORMAN, Okla. — The Storm Prediction Center says a dangerous tornado outbreak is likely Saturday in parts of Kansas and Oklahoma as intense storms move into the southern Plains. Forecasters at the center in Norman, Okla., say there’s a high risk of severe weather from Oklahoma City north to Salina, Kan. The severe storms are expected to strike Saturday afternoon and evening. They warn that baseball-sized hail could pummel some isolated areas and winds of up to 70 mph are possible. The Storm Prediction Center says Saturday’s outbreak could be a “high-end life threatening event.” Forecasters say there’s a slight risk of severe weather Saturday in the country’s midsection, stretching from central Texas northeast to Iowa.
