UPDATE: Tornado threat persists in Oklahoma, Kansas

ENID — The Storm Prediction Center says a severe weather outbreak is possible in the Southern Plains on Wednesday as more storms take aim at the area.

Forecasters say west-central Oklahoma and west-central Kansas are at a moderate risk of severe weather Wednesday afternoon and evening. The National Weather Service says the storms could bring baseball-sized hail, wind gusts of up to 70 mph and tornadoes.

The moderate risk area includes Moore, Okla., where 24 people were killed May 20 in a massive EF5 tornado.

Mike Honigsberg, certified director of Enid/Garfield County Emergency Management,  said Wednesday’s threat will occur around 4 p.m. To 11 p.m. and a tornado or two are possible.

"Depending what happens with storms tonight and tomorrow will depend on what we expect for Thursday evening," Honigsberg said. "The main exception is that the tornado threat will be at it’s highest at this point in the week."

Forecasters say the risk of nasty weather will persist throughout the week, with severe thunderstorms and isolated tornadoes possible Thursday in the central U.S.
