A few thunderstorms have been popping up along the Kansas/Oklahoma state line. Our attention is turning to western Kansas where new storms will take shape over the next several hours.
As the evening continues, there is a chance for an isolated storm or two, where a Marginal Risk for severe storms is posted. Storm Tracker Radar will become more active overnight. Hail and damaging winds are the primary threats with any of the stronger storms.
This wave will march east into Thursday morning.
Another round is setting up for Thursday evening. Once again, these thunderstorms could be strong to severe, capable of producing large hail and damaging winds.
Widespread showers and thunderstorms will track across the state on Friday as colder air sags south. By evening, the rain will try to change to snow north of I-70. This storm will depart early on Saturday. Any snow accumulation in northern Kansas will be little to none before temperatures start to warm early next week.
Temperatures will be mild tonight in the 40s and 50s.
We will have a wide range in temps for Thursday from the 40s through the 70s. We could also squeeze out a few 80s!
Over the weekend, we’ll take a step back into the 50s with a return to more spring-like weather early next week.
