The rain has continued off and on in western Kansas for much of the day. Most of this will stay below severe thresholds this evening.
However, there have been a few severe thunderstorms in the Texas Panhandle. While they will weaken as they track closer to our counties in the Oklahoma Panhandle and southwest Kansas, they could still produce brief gusty winds and small hail.
The severe threat is greatest in the Slight Risk (yellow) shaded areas this evening.
For Saturday, as of 7:15 PM Friday, we are under a General Risk of severe storms for a good chunk of Kansas. I think this could be upgraded due to an unstable atmosphere and favorable shear. All forms of severe weather cannot be ruled out if this can come to fruition.
The timeframe will be between 3 and 7 PM Saturday.
This whole system should pull away from us by Sunday morning, just in time for the marathon.
Any showers on Monday will be confined to the west with drier conditions until next Wednesday.
