There are several bouts of severe weather during the later half of this week thanks to a slow-moving storm system in the western United States.
With a slowly-advancing trough stalled, multiple disturbances will ride along along the jet stream. The disturbances will exit the jet stream on Thursday and Friday and meet up with unstable air mass situated over Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri.
This will lead to widespread severe thunderstorms across the central and southern plains to the end of the week.
However, even more severe weather is on the forecast for Saturday.
Another strong disturbance will rotate out to the West and trigger additional thunderstorms with large hail, damaging winds and possible tornadoes.
Similar to Thursday and Friday's storms, the Saturday storms will target anywhere from Iowa southward to north Texas.
