A Severe T-Storm Watch is in effect for areas highlighted in pink until 1 AM.
Large hail and damaging winds are primary. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out, although the threat is low.
Flash flooding is possible overnight and into Thursday morning for areas in dark red and green.
Several inches of rain could fall in a short period of time, causing waters to rise.
Please watch out if traveling overnight or early Thursday morning. Storms will cluster together and move southeast across the state. Storms will inch closer to Wichita by midnight.
Storms will continue off and on through Thursday, but severe storms are less likely.
Drier conditions are expected by Thursday evening.
Temperatures will take a hit over the next several days.
Highs will drop into the 80s! More storms are in store over the weekend, although it won’t be a washout. Right now, Saturday looks like the day that will be wetter than Sunday.
Be sure to stay weather aware through tonight! I’ll continue to keep an eye on the storms in the Storm Track 3 weather center, on-air and online. – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
