More storms on the menu for KAKEland

Posted: Updated:

Storms are expected across KAKEland starting this afternoon into the overnight hours, and some severe weather is possible, especially across northwest into north-central Kansas later this evening into the overnight hours.

Storms will begin to form mid-afternoon across many areas in KAKEland, and some storms across far western Kansas may be strong to borderline severe.  Storms forming further east could get strong, but widespread severe weather is not anticipated further east.  Those storms that do form early across the western half of KAKEland could produce some large hail, possible as big as golf balls, along with damaging winds.  There may be a brief window for a tornado or two, but that threat looks very low.

The main round of storms will develop later this evening across northwest Kansas and move as a line of storms, primarily along and north of I-70, through the evening and overnight hours.  It's possible this line will hold together into the early morning hours, exiting KAKEland just before sunrise.  This line of storms may have some hail up to 1 inch, but the main threat will be a swath of damaging wind gusts, possibly exceeding 65 mph as it moves east across northern KAKEland overnight.

Any lingering storms should come to an end early Tuesday morning, and a much quieter weather pattern will take hold into the weekend, with only very low storm chances on a couple days into the weekend.
