Parts of KAKEland are in store for rain and potentially severe weather this evening.
Thunderstorms will begin to develop this afternoon as a cold front pushes through southwest and north-central Kansas and moves to the southeast.
The biggest threats from these storms are hail up to one inch in diameter and winds gusts up to 60 miles-per-hour. Locally heavy rain is also possible. However, the threat of severe weather is small.
The storms should taper off in south-central Kansas around 9 p.m. and continue into southeast Kansas.
Meteorologist Jay Prater is monitoring conditions in the First Alert Weather Center.
For Friday in south-central Kansas: mostly cloudy skies early with decreasing clouds through the afternoon. Highs will top out in the upper 70s.
