Temperatures are cooler and the humidity remains high. With an unstable atmosphere, a few thunderstorms have developed in the heat of the day. A Severe T-Storm Watch is in effect until midnight for NW Kansas and SW Nebraska.
Large hail and damaging winds through this evening are possible with the strongest storms. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.
An isolated shower or storm is possible closer to the Wichita metro, but storms will stay below severe thresholds.
The northwest part of the state will be targeted for more severe weather Friday evening. An Enhanced Risk is already up for a line of damaging storms that will bring fierce winds, large hail and heavy rainfall.
Storms will easily bring 1″ to 2″ in select spots across the state over the next 24 hours.
Friday night won’t be our only chance for storms. Nature will repeat itself Saturday night and Sunday night.
Temperatures will stay in the 80s through the weekend and into early next week.
Skies will dry out by Monday afternoon. The heat will build back at toward the end of next week.
Make sure you stay connected and keep an eye to the sky as these storms move through over the coming days. I’ll have the latest track tonight on KSN News, on-air and online. – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
