Strong and severe storms are possible across portions of KAKEland this afternoon and evening.
A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued until 9:00 p.m. Wichita and Sedgwick County are not in the watch area.
Counties in the watch area are Barber, Barton, Clark, Comanche, Decatur, Edwards, Ellis, Finney, Ford, Gove, Graham, Gray, Haskell, Hodgeman, Kiowa, Lane, Meade, Ness, Norton, Osborne, Pawnee, Phillips, Pratt, Rooks, Rush, Russell, Scott, Seward, Sheridan, Smith, Stafford and Trego.
The greatest threats will be large hail possibly as large as golf balls and winds in excess of 60 mph. While tornadoes do not look overly likely, stronger cells could produce a few short lived tornadoes.
The greatest threat is along and east of a line from Colby to Garden City and along and west of a line from Wichita to Junction City. Storms will start off as individual cells before eventually forming into a line along the cold front. Once storms form a line the greatest threat will be high winds.
