Tornadoes – Heavy Rain – Flooding

Severe Storms

Widespread severe weather was reported last week from Texas, across Oklahoma, into Kansas. There were over 20 reports of tornadoes (red dots).

Extreme Rainfall

The heaviest rain fell from North Oklahoma into Southeast Kansas. In some areas over 6 inches of rain was observed.


The extreme rainfall has resulted in widespread flash flooding and field inundation. In addition, major rivers are in flood, especially near communities in red(moderate) or purple (major flooding).

More Rain On The Way

The weather system that has produced all the adverse weather will remain in the area for a while. The result will be more heavy rain over parts of the middle U.S. Here is the rainfall forecast for the next 7 days.

Week 2 - Not Much Better

The extended outlook for the end of the month into early June indicates continued wet weather (green shades) over the Midwest.
