This hazardous weather outlook is for east central...north
central and northeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and tonight.

A cluster of thunderstorms, some severe, will move into north
central Kansas by early this evening and spread east across much
of northern Kansas through the evening hours. A second round of
strong to severe storms will likely move across the entire area
after midnight. The greatest potential hazard with the strongest
storms will be damaging winds, possibly in excess of 70 mph at
times. Large hail will also be possible, particularly this evening
in north central Kansas. There is also a small chance for a
tornado to develop with the strongest storms.

With the potential for two rounds of thunderstorms through tonight,
some areas could receive heavy rain...possibly enough to cause
localized flash flooding.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

A few strong to severe thunderstorms may develop in northern and
far eastern Kansas on Wednesday, mainly impacting the area between
noon and 4 PM before moving off to the east.

Another round of strong to severe thunderstorms will impact the
area Thursday evening into the overnight hours...with yet another
round of storms expected on Friday. Severe weather will be
possible throughout this time frame, but greater uncertainty
exists in the details.

With several rounds of rainfall possible through early Saturday,
flooding could be come a concern.

Details with this forecast could still change so be sure to keep
up to date with the latest forecast information.


Spotter activation may be needed this evening and overnight across
much of north central, northeast, and east central Kansas.
