Clouds have plagued portions of central and eastern Kansas today. This has been a good thing because it has lowered today’s severe weather threat.
Now, don’t get me wrong, we will see more storms this evening and through the overnight. Our attention right now is on eastern Colorado and NW Kansas/SW Nebraska.
They have had a lot more sunshine there and the atmosphere is pretty unstable. More storms will continue to fire up here and then work east into the rest of the state later this evening and through the overnight.
Some of the stronger storms could produce damaging 60 MPH winds and large hail. Although the greater threat going into tonight will be heavy rain.
This complex should depart early Monday morning. Depending on where the front lines up Monday afternoon, another batch of strong to severe storms is possible. Right now, it looks like the best bets are to the southeast of the Turnpike.
Once this clears, our rain chances drop for the rest of the work week and the temperatures will soar! It will feel like summertime with highs well into the 90s, if not, the triple digits. Join me tonight on KSN News as I track tonight’s storms and give you a sneak peek of our work week heat. – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
