Early morning storms strolling through parts of Kansas. No severe weather, just noisy with heavy rain and frequent lightning. You can track what’s on radar by clicking here.
Active weather continues for Tuesday. All modes of severe weather are possible. A wide range of temperatures this afternoon, from the 70s to northwest Kansas to the 90s farther south.
There is an Enhanced Risk of severe storms today across central Kansas. Greatest risk stays mainly west of I-135. The primary threat with these storms will be hail to the size of golf balls and damaging wind of 70 MPH. A tornado or two is certainly not out of the equation. Flooding is also a major concern.
We turn to calmer weather on Wednesday. There is another wave of storms coming through late in the nighttime. Not expecting rough weather with this batch.
The heat turns up a notch for the second half of the week. Steamy kick-off to River Festival.
For now, storm free skies expected this weekend.
