A linear axis of thunderstorms intensified this afternoon, as it
moved across southeastern Kansas. Several storms became severe in
the southeast, with numerous damaging wind reports received. The

noticeably more humid conditions prevailed to the east of this
front. Late afternoon temperatures ranged from the upper 60s in
the far northwest, to around 90 degrees across central and south-
central Kansas.

The cold front will continue pushing slowly southeastward tonight,
then stalling by late Sunday afternoon, from northern Oklahoma to

along and behind the cold front, with the most numerous coverage
expected northern Oklahoma across southeast Kansas, into Iowa and
Missouri. A few severe storms will be possible through this
evening, mainly from the eastern half of Kansas into the lower
Missouri Valley. Large hail and damaging wind gusts will be the
main storm threats.

Low temperatures tonight will be in the 40s behind the front in
western Nebraska and northwestern Kansas, to the middle to upper
60s ahead of the front, in Oklahoma, southeastern Kansas, and
