Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says Sunday will be a weather alert day due to the possibility for large hail, damaging wind, heavy rain and a few tornadoes.
Tonight, storms will stay isolated to western Kansas, ending around midnight as they move to the east. Lows will fall into the mid 60s to low 70s.
Tomorrow, a cold front will move into the state from the northwest. Storms will form along this front as it moves to the east throughout the afternoon and evening. The first chance for storms will be in northwestern Kansas around lunchtime. These will move into the Hays and Dodge City area in the early afternoon, the Salina area around 5-6 and the Hutchinson and Wichita area around 8.
These storms could become severe. The main threats will be large hail, up to the size of an egg (with isolated storms possibly producing hail stones even larger than that), and damaging wind gusts over 60 mph. Heavy rainfall could also be possible along with a few tornadoes.
Storms will taper off overnight, moving to the east.
Off and on showers and storms will be possible in south central Kansas on Monday, but the threat for severe weather looks like it will be in eastern Kansas for the start of the work week.
