Severe threat update (4-2-14)

Severe weather chances continue for south central and eastern Kansas heading through the day. Here is the setup. A warm front is coming out of Oklahoma this morning and will likely be the focus for storms late in the afternoon and especially this evening. One of our short term models develops storms east of Wichita around 6 p.m. this evening. Click on any image for a larger picture. Temperatures over much of Kansas will not climb out of the 50s. South of the warm front, highs will be near 80. It's that typical clash of warm and cool that will lead to storms this afternoon. Main threat will be very large hail, but warm front situations can produce isolated tornadoes (mainly because of the shifting winds with the front)
 Here is the Storm Prediction Center outlook for today. They changed the outlook from Tuesday and pushed the threat area farther west. We will just have to see how far north the warm front makes it today. Stay tuned.
