Wichita, Kansas -- We could be in for a wild ride this weekend. There is a moderate risk for violent weather. And it could include tornadoes, very large hail and high winds.
But, so far in Kansas, all has been quiet. For the most part. Kansas has only seen a handful of confirmed tornadoes and some experts say we haven't seen a year like this since 1993.
"Oh, but it's Kansas," says Dave Freeman, Chief Meteorologist at KSN. "You just never know. Keep in mind there really is nothing you can call 'average' about Kansas weather."
"Yes, we certainly could get severe weather this weekend. There is a chance. The Pinpoint Weather Center will be here and we will be on top of it."
Freeman says this year, you just never know. We could yet have a 'record' year for the most or the least tornadoes.
"Well, we are in the middle of tornado season," says Freeman. "So, we just have to keep in mind the deadly stuff can happen. We're not rooting for tornadoes or baseball size hail. Here is what has me concerned: It's been quiet. And I hope that people are paying attention. I hope that just because it's been quiet that people haven't been lulled into a false sense of security. It's Kansas. When there are storms on the horizon, you have to be paying attention. "
The moderate risk for severe weather will roughly be from Wichita to western Kansas on Saturday, and then Wichita to eastern Kansas on Sunday.
