Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
456 AM CDT Fri Jun 16 2017

An expansive thunderstorm complex moved southeast across the
eastern half of Kansas Thursday evening, producing several
instances of damaging winds, along with locally heavy rain. Many
of the highest wind gusts ranged from 60 to 80 miles per hour.
Under mostly cloudy skies, predawn temperatures over the eastern
half of Kansas were in the 60s to low 70s.

Isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms are possible late this
afternoon and evening across portions of eastern Nebraska, Iowa,
Kansas and the northern half of Missouri. Given a very unstable
airmass, any storms that develop will have the potential to
produce severe weather in the form of large hail and damaging
winds, along with locally heavy rain. Hot and humid air will
prevail once again today, with forecast high temperatures well
into the 90s, and heat indices approaching or exceeding 100

Storm chances will linger overnight, with forecast low
temperatures in the 60s and 70s. The greatest potential for severe
weather will be before midnight.
