Friday afternoon, the best chances for scattered showers and a few strong storms will be found across parts of western Kansas, as a warm front lifts northward into Nebraska. Some of the storms could produce large hail and wind gusts over 60 mph. The storms will most likely be moving east to northeast.
Temperatures north of the Friday afternoon's front will will be quite cool over central and northern Kansas will only be in the 50s, while highs across the south top out in the low to mid-60s.
