Severe Weather Threat For Tuesday Through Thursday


The first major severe weather threat of the season is shaping up for the middle part of this week across the Central Plains. Severe thunderstorms are forecast to impact north-central and far NE Kansas on Tuesday, with the location of Wednesday’s severe threat hinging on how Tuesday unfolds. The chance for severe weather may linger into Thursday in east-central Kansas, but confidence is low at this time. All hazards will be possible, including large hail, damaging winds, tornadoes, and very heavy rain. Make sure you know your severe weather safety plan and ensure you have multiple ways to get the warning! Please stay tuned for further updates.
