Summary

Some models are pointing toward a risk for tornadoes, severe hail and damaging wind Wednesday. Right now most of them have converged on the northern half of Kansas and a little bit of southern Nebraska as the main risk zone, but one fairly reliable model is depicting things much further south. Another model, also fairly reliable, jumped way north in its last run.

The main positives with this setup in comparison to the last few are a better forecast moisture profile and better timing of a mid-level impulse.
