Days 2-7 Discussion

Thunderstorms are likely late Thursday and Thursday night.
Initial storms in NW Kansas are expected to be supercells, capable
of large hail and potentially a few tornadoes. This risk will be
highest across the NW zones early Thursday evening. Thunderstorms
are expected to organize into a large complex of storms and race
southeast across SW Kansas Thursday evening. If storms organize
into line and bowing segments as expected, than damaging wind
gusts can be expected. Locally very heavy rainfall is also
expected, but quick storm movement will reduce the flooding threat
at least to some degree.
