Friday: Storms developing across western Kansas around 6 or 7 p.m. will be moving east. Main threats will be some large hail to start, and then later on, gusty winds up to 70 mph and heavy rains. I expect as we move past 11 p.m./midnight, storms will weaken as they move east, but heavy rains will continue with the storms. Although storms will be scattered to start, they should grow into a bigger complex that moves east with time.
Saturday: Highest severe threat is focused over northeast Kansas. Large hail, high winds, and a few tornadoes look possible. There's a cold front that will be pushing through our area, which will set the storms off after 5/6 p.m. Although there may be some rain and storms in western Kansas, they aren't expected to be hail or wind producers.
So take a look at the images and plan accordingly. It's another weekend in May that will be a little on the stormy side and we want to make sure you are prepared. Although we have some spotty rain/storm chances for next week, the severe threat will be lower for much of the week.
