Severe storms today

Good Tuesday morning. I'll have to keep the blog entry shorter today in order to get ready for everything else later today.

There hasn't been much change in the overall thinking of what will happen this afternoon/evening. Storms could fire up in central and eastern Kansas around 3 p.m. today and they look to be fairly scattered.

Another round of storms are forecast to develop later in the evening, around 6-8 p.m. and those may be coming from Oklahoma.

The most likely time for tornadoes (if we are going to see some today) will come after 5 p.m. when the wind fields in the atmosphere get a little stronger. We do expect there to be some very large hail with stronger storms. It wouldn't be a surprise to see hail a little larger than baseball size given the setup in the atmosphere. Once the storms get going, they will move to the northeast.

After midnight, storms will gradually weaken with time and by Wednesday, much of the severe storms will be well east of Kansas.
