WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Peyton Sanders says that isolated severe storms will be possible this evening with more chances Wednesday and Thursday.

A few isolated storms will be possible this evening over portions of southwest into south central Kansas. Hail and brief gusty winds will be possible before storms gradually weaken after sunset.

Wednesday will be a warmer day for most of the state. Morning temperatures will start out in the 50s and 60s with afternoon highs in the mid 80s.

A few storms over eastern Colorado will move into western Kansas during the evening with a threat of hail and strong wind gusts. A tornado or two cannot be ruled out.

A cluster of storms over Nebraska will affect areas north of I-70 late Wednesday night through early Thursday with damaging wind gusts the primary threat.

Storm chances will shift into south central and eastern Kansas Thursday with another threat of severe weather. Storms during the afternoon and evening will be severe with large hail and damaging winds. A tornado cannot be ruled out.
