Isolated storms are possible Thursday morning along a warm front

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

especially east of I-35. This threat of river flooding would
into the weekend.

storms possible.
