WICHITA, Kan. -- The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for parts of KAKEland.

The watch includes many counties in northwest Kansas until 11 p.m. CDT, 10 p.m. MDT: Cheyenne, Decatur, Norton, Phillips, Rawlins, Sherman, Thomas and Wallace Counties.

A Heat Advisory is also in effect for the eastern half of Kansas, including Wichita and Sedgwick County, until 8 p.m.

During the heat of the afternoon pop up showers and storms a possibility across Western Kansas. Conditions across Northwest Kansas are right for severe weather development this afternoon. The primary threat with storms this afternoon will be large hail and high wind. Not out of the question that a few storms don't produce an isolated tornado or two.

During the late evening and overnight hours the severe weather threat will try to slide east into North Central Kansas. The sky in Wichita will remain dry tonight. See the map below for the severe threat area.
