More severe weather possible in KAKEland

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

More severe weather is possible Tuesday across parts of KAKEland, with storms firing as early as late afternoon. 

The main threat will be focused across the southern half of the region from late afternoon through Wednesday morning. One area of focus will be south-central Kansas where storms may fire by late afternoon bringing the chance of damaging winds and hail over one inch in diameter. 

The tornado threat is low, but there is a brief window early where an isolate brief tornado is possible. Those storms should transition to a damaging wind and hail threat by late evening through the overnight.

A second area will be southwest Kansas where storms moving out of Colorado Tuesday evening will move east/southeast across the southwest corner of KAKEland. Damaging winds and some hail is possible with those storms through late evening into the overnight.

Other storms are possible across northern portions of KAKEland overnight into Wednesday morning, but the severe risk with those is lower than down south.
