Wednesday Evening/Night Storms Possible

  • Round 1 of storms is just exiting the forecast area early this morning however, it did produce some gusty winds between 30 and 50 mph across eastern Kansas and western Missouri as it moved through. There were a few reports of small tree limbs down.
  • Rounds 2 and 3 are expected this evening and tonight. Strong storms with perhaps an isolated severe storm will be possible. The main threat will be for large hail up to quarter size otherwise, expect small hail, gusty winds 30 to 50 mph, and frequent lightning.
  • Round 4 looks like it will come Thursday afternoon through Thursday night. Severe weather will be possible across northeastern Kansas and northwestern Missouri with large hail and damaging winds being the main threats.
With several rounds of storms still expected on top of last night rainfall...minor flooding will be possible with an additional 1 to 3 inches of precipitation expected.
