Scattered thunderstorms are expected throughout the day along a cool front as it moves through KAKEland. Not all storms will be severe, but we will likely see a few strong to severe storms this afternoon and evening that will result in warnings. The biggest concern for today will be hail at or above quarter size and 60 mph wind gusts or higher.

Scattered showers and storms have already been moving through northwest KS all morning long. A few severe thunderstorm warnings were issued around 9 AM for hail, but all were dropped at 10 AM. New thunderstorms will continue to fire up along the cool front and this is what radar MIGHT look like in the coming hours. It will not look exactly like what you see below, but the general idea is that we will have scattered storms along the front (in a line). Some of you will see storms while others won't. The same idea applies to the severe threat. 


Most of the storms will move out of KAKEland and into eastern KS by midnight. Skies will gradually clear as we inch towards sunrise Wednesday.
