The dangerous thunderstorms will precede a potentially far more significant and widespread severe weather event late this week and into the last weekend of April.

The threat for severe weather blossoming after dark could catch some residents off guard.

“The biggest storm threats Tuesday night will likely be damaging wind gusts and hail,” AccuWeather Storm Warning Meteorologist Brian Adams said. “The tornado threat will be very marginal during this time period.”

Communities such as Springfield, Missouri, and Tulsa, Oklahoma, may be rocked by the thunderstorms.

Oklahoma City may stay on the southern fringe of the worst of the storms, but severe weather will not be too far to the north and east.
