Severe weather timing today - Weather Alert Day

Thanks for stopping by the blog and checking out the latest on severe weather chances for Today (Tuesday).

There will be several watches and warnings for parts of Kansas during the afternoon and evening hours as we expect storms to develop after 2 p.m. and cover much of central and eastern Kansas.

BIGGEST THREAT TODAY: Large Hail / Strong wind gusts over 65 mph

An isolated tornado is also possible, but that threat will exist from about 2:30 - 6 p.m. After 6 p.m., storms will likely grow into a big batch of rain and the tornado threat should greatly be diminished.

Here's the timing:

3 P.M.
5:30 P.M.
10 P.M.

 Wednesday afternoon - the weather calms down briefly

Thursday - another chance for severe weather will arrive in the Plains. The timing will likely be later in the evening (most likely after 7 p.m.) and this will impact southwest, central, and eastern Kansas. We will update the severe weather chances later this week, but it continues to look very active and very wet for places that don't need anymore rain right now.
