WGNTV is calling today’s potentially historic tornado producing storms in Kansas “Atmospheric Armageddon” as Tom Skilling goes out into the field in search of the action.
Tornado producing storms are bearing down on Kansas and Oklahoma with watches and warnings in effect over the next 24 hours.
Tom Skilling, and fellow meteorologists Mike Phelps and Terry Swails from WQAD are joining many other intrepid iMapTracker network storm chasers in Kansas and Oklahoma, which is ripe for violent weather today and the possibility of multiple tornadoes. Tornadoes are scheduled for later this afternoon becoming most active from 5 to 7 pm Central time, when the conditions may prove to be the most volatile.
