Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that our chances for storms have not ended just yet and severe weather continues to be a possibility through Thursday night. A Weather Alert Day has been issued for the increased chances of severe storms arriving Thursday.
Strong storms are expected mainly across northern Kansas into the night and may produce some high winds in spots. Low temperatures will be in the 60s and 70 through the night.
Thursday should be dry for most of the morning and afternoon, but another round of hail and wind producing storms will be on the way into the evening hours. Storms will start in northern Kansas and move southeast, producing strong winds and some hail.
Much cooler weather slides into the area for Friday with highs in the low to mid 80s. Most of the rain should be gone for the start of the holiday weekend.
