Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that a Weather Alert Day is in place for Thursday as severe weather chances return to much of the area. Large hail and a few tornadoes will be possible. We will also have VERY heavy rains in spots, so be prepared for more flooding.
Skies will turn cloudy with scattered showers and storms developing into early Thursday. Low temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s. More storms will flare up Thursday afternoon and some of them are expected to be severe. Highs will be in the 60s and 70s, but in northwest Kansas, it will be MUCH cooler with highs in the 50s.
Storms will begin to wind down late Thursday night, but chances will be back on Friday, especially over southern Kansas. Storm chances will linger into the holiday weekend, but many of them will happen late in the evening and into the overnight.
