Clusters of strong to severe thunderstorms moved southeast across
far eastern Kansas overnight. Large hail, damaging winds and
localized flooding resulted. Predawn temperatures over the eastern

A strong cold front will approach from the north today,
supporting clusters of strong to severe thunderstorms by mid to
late afternoon across the region. The primary threats will be
damaging winds and large hail, along with pockets of torrential
rain and flooding. It will be hot and humid ahead of the cold
front, with forecast high temperatures in the 90s to low 100s.
Factoring in the humidity will support heat indices exceeding 105
degrees for many locations.

Areas of showers and thunderstorms will gradually exit to the
south tonight. Severe storms are likely through the evening.
Cooler air will filter south on stout north winds, with overnight
temperatures falling through the 60s.
