Today A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 9 am. Partly sunny, with a high near 86. East southeast wind 8 to 13 mph becoming west southwest in the afternoon. Tonight A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms before 10 pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 57. North wind 14 to 17 mph.
Strong thunderstorms that may produce half inch diameter hail and 40 to 50 mph winds will persist across Central Kansas early this morning. The risk for severe thunderstorms occurring in areas along, and east, of the I-35/I-135 Corridor are increasing for late this afternoon and this evening. The greatest risk for severe thunderstorms capable of very large hail up to the size of tennis balls, tornadoes, and 60 to 70 mph winds remain in areas along and east of a line from around Yates Center, through Fredonia, to extreme Southwest Montgomery County. Areas west of this line to as far as the I-35/I-135 Corridor should expect hail as large as golf balls and winds around 60 mph. Thunderstorms redeveloping across the remainder of the Central and South-Central Kansas would be of lesser intensity. WXGraphic 5_27_2017.png
