Cold front pushes threat of severe weather into KAKEland

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

A slow moving cold front pushing into central Kansas this evening will be kicking off a few strong to severe t-storms over the next several hours across the southeastern two-thirds of the state.

The front has left a severe thunderstorm watch looming over parts of Southwest Kansas until 10 p.m. tonight. The watch includes: Barber, Clark ,Comanche, Edwards, Ford, Hodgeman, Kiowa, Pawnee, Pratt and Stafford counties. 

Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary threat along with very heavy rain although an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

The risk of severe storms will be diminishing after midnight although patchy rain and t-showers will continue to hang around mostly the eastern half of the state late tonight and through the day Sunday.

As of late Saturday afternoon it appeared as if most of the storms should stay below severe limits late tonight and tomorrow.
