Stormy weather continues

It was by far our busiest severe weather day we've had in a long time. I don't know how many tornadoes we had Tuesday evening, but when the final count comes in, it will likely be somewhere around 8-10. Keep in mind, if 5 people see the same tornado and report it, that will be 5 tornado reports, not 5 different tornadoes (it can sometimes cause confusion)

Moving on to the next round and what we expect to happen moving into the holiday weekend. There are several areas of the state that could use some dry weather for a few weeks, but we aren't going to get that kind of stretch for awhile yet.

Today: Mainly quiet. A stray shower or storm may develop late in the afternoon with enough heating and humidity around. However, we don't expect there to be very many (if any) storms in Kansas.

Thursday: Our main culprit to all of the active weather is finally heading into the Plains. The chance for severe storms will once again be in place and we will likely have more hail, wind, and a few tornadoes in the state by Thursday afternoon. Because some areas are so saturated, flooding is a real threat too.

Friday: While the chance for storms will linger on Friday, the severe weather threat is MUCH lower and should be rather spotty.

Saturday: Still expected to be mainly dry around Kansas as the main storm system finally pushes to the north of Kansas.

Sunday - Tuesday: Storm chances will continue for much of Kansas, including Memorial Day as well. There could be some severe storms during this time too.

We are starting to see a shift in the pattern that could finally bring an end to so much stormy weather across Kansas. This change could happen as early as Wednesday, June 1st, but definitely, by the second half of next week, we should start seeing more dry weather returning to the Plains.
