Multi Day Tornado Event Likely (5/8-5/9) (Post #1)

After a very long day of severe weather on Wednesday, three more rounds of severe weather look likely on the southern plains. The first is today across southern Oklahoma into north Texas. Then Friday and Saturday both hold the potential to be high end tornado events across the southern plains. This may include the threat for strong to (possibly) violent and long lived tornadoes, in addition to very large hail and damaging winds.
