Western's Weather Wrap: Severe Storms through Saturday

Some scattered, non-severe storms have been moving across northern Kansas this morning, but they are expected to exit to the east by the afternoon.

Much of the day will then remain quiet with partly cloudy skies, gusty southeast winds, very warm temperatures, and muggy conditions. More storms are expected develop across western Kansas after 4 PM.

These storms will run the risk of becoming severe, with an Enhanced Risk in place across southwest/central Kansas this evening. The main concern will be the damaging wind threat, though some large hail and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

Those storms will then form into a line and race eastward into the night, not expected to reach Wichita until closer to midnight. The severe threat will go down overnight, but some heavy rain and strong winds will still be possible.

We'll then do this all over again tomorrow evening, with a Slight Risk in place for central/eastern Kansas. Once again, hail and wind will be the primary concern.

I'll time these storms out for you on KSN News at Noon!
