Storms move through south-central Kansas bringing rain, hail and wind, but most of all cooler temps

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) Storm Team 12 is monitoring a batch of thunderstorms moving through south-central Kansas.

Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says the main threat is heavy rain and small hail, but some storms could pack 50 to 60 mph winds and lots of lightning.

A wind gust of 65 mph was reported about 2 miles northwest of Udall. A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for parts of Cowley, Sedgwick, Sumner counties until 8;45 p.m.

Ross says if you live in the Wichita area, you may begin to notice cooler temperatures as the cold front moves in. He says the highest threat for severe storms is south of Wichita, but those storms should begin to weaken as they move southeast.

"Stay indoors or wait for these storms to pass," he said. "I don't expect widespread flooding out of these storms in south-central Kansas."

No significant rainfall is expected for the area Sunday night.
