Evening storms favored in northeast Kansas
A tornado watch has been issued until 11pm
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Most, if not all of the evening storms will remain in northeast Kansas where severe weather is expected into the night. A cold front will continue to make its way into central and south central Kansas late in the night and early Thursday. While some additional storms will develop along and just ahead of the front, chances for severe weather remain low. Best chances for this activity will be near the Salina area and east of I-135.
Expect the rain and thunder to be east of the Flint Hills by 8am Thursday as cooler air overspreads the area. Northwest winds will be gusty, but not as windy as recent days. Highs will be in the 50s and 60s for most of the state.
Friday will be partly cloudy with a little less wind and cooler temperatures. Highs will be in the 50s.
A freeze is still a concern for western Kansas Friday and Saturday morning, but farther east, it looks less likely since clouds will help to act like a blanket.
