There could be a few isolated storms Tuesday night southeast of the Kansas Turnpike, and while a few could produce some hail and wind, the heavier storms will come Wednesday afternoon.
What kinds of things are we looking for in the setup Wednesday?
1) Where is the highest humidity (dew points)
2) How strong are the winds near the ground and higher up?
3) Where is the stationary front?
4) How warm will the temperatures be?
|Highest humidity will likely be along and east of I-135|
Beyond our severe threat Wednesday, another healthy storm system will push in from the west over the weekend. While it's unclear on the magnitude of severe weather and location, there is a pretty good signal from the computer models that we will have some solid chances for rain and storms beginning west Saturday and spreading east by Sunday. We need the rain and this weekend could be some of our best chances statewide that we've had in a LONG time.
