An isolated severe storm with some large hail is possible with the very few that are able to strengthen.

An upper level ridge will build behind the system bringing another round of sunny and lovely weekend weather Friday through Sunday.

Severe thunderstorms with the possibility of tornadoes are forecast for part of the Southern Plains and the mid-Mississippi Valley. Unstable conditions will develop on Monday afternoon across the region, accompanied by enough wind shear to support strong to severe storms.

Initially, storms will pose a risk for damaging winds, hail, and/or a tornado, especially across portions of northwest and west-central Indiana.

Wednesday's severe threat shifts only slightly to the east, in advance of this slow moving weather system.

Raberding says there will be several rounds of thunderstorms moving through with the biggest chance of severe weather for the Springfield metro hitting tomorrow afternoon. Expect wind damage to roofs.siding and trees. The round of potentially severe weather won't even start-up until the late evening hours. "The tricky part is how much sun we are going to see today".

New at 3 p.m. Wednesday - A Flash Flood Watch is now in effect until 8 p.m. Thursday.

At Coors Field, you could see the size of the hail bouncing off the field into the dugout.
