WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Scattered thunderstorms will redevelop along a cold front that will be racing south and east across the area through Thursday morning. Storms could produce some hail and wind, although even away from any storms, you will notice strong wind gusts above 50 mph. Storms will initiate in north central Kansas and then begin pushing east and southeast.

Severe weather chances will wane by 4 or 5 am Thursday once the front pushes out of the region. Northwest winds will remain quite gusty, and possibly be above 40 mph at the start of the day. Much cooler temperatures will take over as lows fall to the 30s and 40s for most of the state.

It will remain breezy Thursday afternoon before the wind dies off later in the evening.
