NORMAN, Okla. 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.

An area stretching from Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin south to Texas is a slight risk for severe weather Wednesday.

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.
