Can it get much better than this? Sun-filled skies, warm temperatures with light winds — This really is the definition of a picture perfect day!
Over the weekend, a slow moving storm system will inch closer to us. So, enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.
There is a chance for an isolated shower or storm Saturday evening in SW Kansas. This rain will track across the state heading into Sunday morning. I can see folks in central and eastern Kansas, including Wichita, picking up a brief shower.
By Sunday evening, isolated strong to severe storms will develop along the KS/CO state line. Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary concerns with these storms.
Monday evening, we’ll repeat a chance for strong to severe storms in western Kansas where large hail and damaging winds will once again be threats.
As the main system comes closer on Tuesday and Wednesday, severe storms at this point look likely. Where and exactly what time they develop will be ironed out over the weekend. Right now is the time to clean out your storm shelter and prepare your family for where you need to go and what you need to do during the event of severe weather.
Depending on the timing and location of these storms, all forms of severe weather from large hail to damaging winds and isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out.
