WICHITA, Kan. — Showers and storms once again possible today across KAKEland, and a few of them could be severe.

Late morning sunshine will provide substantial fuel for afternoon storms. Storms are expected to fire up early in the afternoon as a cold front sweeps across the state.

The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the eastern third of Kansas until 10:00 p.m. Three counties in the KAKEland viewing area are included; Chautauqua, Elk & Greenwood.

Other counties in the watch area are Allen, Anderson, Atchison, Bourbon, Brown, Cherokee, Coffey, Crawford, Doniphan, Douglas, Franklin, Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson, Labette, Leavenworth, Linn, Lyon, Miami, Montgomery, Neosho, Osage, Shawnee, Wilson, Woodson & Wyandotte. Wichita and Sedgwick County are not in the watch area.

Storms will likely start off isolated before merging into a line as they push east of KAKEland. Large hail over 1.5" will be possible with the strongest cells. Wind will also be an issue with the strongest storms. While isolated tornadoes can't be completely ruled out, they do not look likely for KAKEland.
