Wednesday Blog: Keeping a close eye on strong to severe storms on Friday. -Dalton

It turned out to be a pretty great day outside for us today as we once again had temperatures into the mid 70s across the area. We’ve had winds gusty at times which will be a theme as we head into the next couple of days as the highest gusts could be in the 30-40mph range.


Tomorrow looks to be pretty good once again as we’ll have temperatures into the mid-upper 70s across the viewing area.


By Friday morning we will begin to see changes as showers and thunderstorms try to work into our far northwestern counties.

As we work through the day thunderstorms which could be strong to low grade severe will push into Southeastern Kansas.

Strong to severe thunderstorms continue to track east and look to be along the Kansas-Missouri state line by around 5 p.m.

These thunderstorms will be out of here around 8 p.m.

As mentioned there is a low severe threat with these storms. The greater severe threat will be along and south of I-44. Main threats will be wind and hail with a very low tornado threat, but something we need to keep an eye on over the next couple of days. Rainfall will be heavy if you’re caught underneath these storms which is something we need as help with the ongoing drought.



Most areas will have rainfall amounts around an inch on average, however some spots will have higher amounts depending on where these storms track.

Long range forecast is below.

Have a great day!
