Forecasters say tornadoes still possible Tuesday

Posted:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -

Forecasters are telling residents in the Great Plains where severe storms have been moving through to remain vigilant for a few more hours because tornadoes are still possible.

They say low-level wind activity that can produce tornadoes has been relatively dormant so far, but that could change. One small rope tornado has been reported in rural Kansas on Tuesday, with no damage reported.

Storm Prediction Center meteorologist Stephen Goss says storms sweeping across the Plains could be buoyed Tuesday night by an increase in low-level wind activity that usually accommodates higher tornadic activity.

Low-level wind shear usually increases around this time of day.

Hail and damaging winds remain a threat.
