Weather Story

The biggest weather story of the next few days involves the risk for at least a few severe thunderstorms, mainly between tonight and late Wednesday afternoon. These are actually separate rounds of thunderstorm potential. Focusing first on today’s weather, there will be some lingering showers and weak storms this morning with the most concentrated area of precipitation being north of Interstate 80, but the majority of the day should be dry with temperatures climbing well into the 70s most places. Later tonight, there is another chance for thunderstorms, generally favoring our Nebraska counties more so than North Central Kansas. Some of these late-night storms could be severe, with large hail the primary threat. During the daylight hours Wednesday, some places could still see lingering thunderstorms from the overnight hours, a few of which could still be capable of producing hail. By late Wednesday afternoon, a well-defined cold front will be crossing the area. This front could fire up a few more severe storms within eastern and southern portions of our local area during the afternoon and early evening, but the overall-higher chance for severe weather Wednesday should focus along an axis from southern and eastern Kansas, northeastward into Iowa. In the wake of all of these primarily small storm chances, Thursday looks dry and storm-free, area-wide.
