Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
448 AM CDT SUN MAY 22 2016

Early this morning an area of showers about 30 miles wide developed
from the Rooks Osborne County line to Lyons. Southeast 10 to 25 mph
winds coupled with cloudy skies to limit temperatures to between 65
and 70 in most of Central and South-Central Kansas, while Northeast
Kansas settled into the upper 50s.

Severe thunderstorms capable of hail around 2 inches in diameter,
damaging winds, and a few tornadoes will erupt this afternoon from
Western Kansas to Western and Central Oklahoma. The thunderstorms
will spread east across most areas tonight, perhaps as far as the
Kansas Missouri border, with quarter-sized hail the primary threat.

Southerly 20 to 30 mph winds will push today`s highs to around 80.
Southerly 10 to 20 mph winds will team with cloudy skies to limit
lows to the 60s in most areas. The exceptions would be Northwest
Kansas and Western Nebraska where a southeast-moving cold front
would arrive late to push lows into the mid 50s.
