Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Wichita KS
1230 AM CDT Mon Sep 18 2017

1230 AM CDT Mon Sep 18 2017

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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms, a few of which may produce some
small hail and 40 to 50 mph winds remain possible for all areas.

Areas of fog are likely to reduce visibilities to 1 to 1 1/2 miles
in Central and South-Central Kansas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Showers and a few thunderstorms may linger over eastern Kansas
Monday morning with additional activity possibly redeveloping Monday
night over eastern Kansas as well. Isolated thunderstorms may linger
into Tuesday morning. A few thunderstorms may produce penny-sized
hail 40 to 50 mph winds, with locally heavy rain.

Strong south winds and warm temperatures will cause a very high
grassland fire danger across all of Central and South-Central Kansas
west of I-35/I-135 Tuesday afternoon. All grassland burning should
be avoided. A very high grassland fire danger may return to areas
west of I-135 on Thursday and Friday as well.

Chances for showers and thunderstorms should gradually increase
from the west late week through the weekend and early next week.
Current indications suggest the potential for multiple rounds of
storms, with an accompanying risk of severe weather, heavy rain and
flooding. There remains quite a bit of uncertainty, so stay tuned.


Spotter activation is not anticipated tonight.
