Laura’s Look: Weekend severe storm threat

Weather Blog

Early morning storms working along the Kansas and Nebraska state-line. In some of the stronger storms, gusty winds and heavy rains can be expected. This activity winds down through the morning.

The threat of severe weather lingers into the first half of the weekend. 

Best chance for storms stay across western and northcentral Kansas. In the meantime, warm breezes drive highs into the upper 80s.

Late in the day, strong to severe storms develop in western Kansas. The main threats are large hail and damaging wind. An tornado or two is possible. 

Expecting storms to fire up after 5 p.m. with storms overspreading much of Kansas into the evening. Storm chances look best for the Metro after sunset.

The severe weather threat shifts to the east on Saturday. Same deal here, large hail and strong winds are possible. Can not rule out the possibility of a tornado. 

Calmer weather returns on Sunday.
