Warnings about severe weather over the next three days has been issued by the meteorologists at the National Weather Service in areas including Nebraska, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansaas. Local residents are advised to be prepared for thunderstorms and tornadoes particularly this weekend.

According to AccuWeather.com, the thunderstorms could begin late Saturday and may last into the night starting from Nebraska to Texas and then progressing to other areas. Meteorologists believe that this could be the worst severe weather event of the season.

“South-central Kansas to west-central Oklahoma would be in an elevated risk area for severe weather Saturday evening,” Scott Breit, a meteorologist explained. The storms would then move over to hit Omaha, Nebraaska, Kansas, Oklahoma City and Dallas.

It has also been warned that the thunderstorms on Saturday would be severe but isolated and scattered. “A reason for extra concern this weekend is that tornadoes have been nearly non-existent so far and people tend to forget what they have learned from year to year,” senior vice president at AccuWeather, Mike Smith, added.
