After a round of morning showers and storms, we reset the atmosphere with another round of storms expected this afternoon into the evening and overnight. The late day storms could turn severe with large hail, high wind and even a few tornadoes.

Late Wednesday morning through early afternoon, is expected to be relatively quiet and dry across KAKEland, with showers and storms not returning until the mid to late afternoon hours. Current thinking is some activity will develop in North Central Kansas, and the environment there could produce supercells, capable of producing large hail, possibly over quarter size (1.0") and wind gusts over 60mph.

 An isolated tornado can't be ruled out in North Central Kansas but the ingredients may be a bit stronger across South Central Kansas, late in the day. 

 All storms that develop this afternoon and into the overnight will warrant watching, especially across North and South Central Kansas. The chances for storms across Western Kansas are a bit lower and are not expected to be quite as rowdy.

 Storms will weaken dramatically as we head into the late overnight hours with a significant decrease in severity expected after midnight as the storms track east out of KAKEland. 

More spotty showers and storms are possible on Thursday and maybe even into Friday morning. At this time, the late week activity should be fairly "garden variety" as we will be lacking many of the severe weather ingredients.
