Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Wichita KS
912 AM CDT Wed May 17 2017

912 AM CDT Wed May 17 2017

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Central Kansas,
South Central Kansas and Southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A few storms will be possible across central Kansas through this
afternoon. Strong or severe weather is not expected.

West winds sustained around 30 mph, with gusts around 45 mph are
expected over most of the area today. Check the latest wind
advisory for details.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Isolated storms are possible Thursday morning along a warm front
that will extend across South Central and Southeast Kansas. The
main threat will be nickel to quarter sized hail.

The bigger threat will occur late Thursday afternoon or more likely
Thursday evening as severe storms in Western Kansas move into the
area. Golfball hail, 60 to 70 mph winds, a few potentially strong
tornadoes are all possible, especially over a small part of South
Central Kansas. The timing and location of the higher threat storms
may change. Storm intensity will decrease but coverage will
increase overnight. This will decrease the threat of severe
weather, but increase the threat of flooding, especially south of
Highway 50.

Strong storms are likely and few severe storms are possible Friday
afternoon and evening. Locally heavy rain is also likely, with an
increased threat of both short term flooding and river flooding,
especially east of I-35. This threat of river flooding would
persist into the weekend.

More storms are possible Monday and Tuesday, with at least strong
storms possible.


Spotter activation will likely be needed across central and south
central Kansas for Thursday.
