412 AM CDT Mon Aug 21 2017

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

There is a chance for isolated to scattered thunderstorms this
morning across most of northeast and north central Kansas. There
is a risk for severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening
across much of the area. The severe risk for large hail and strong
winds will mainly occur as thunderstorms develop during the
afternoon and evening. Storms are expected to evolve into a slow
moving line during the evening with the main risk transitioning to
very heavy rainfall. Because of this, a Flash Flood Watch has
been posted beginning this evening for northeast and east central
Kansas, or areas east of a line from Abilene to Marysville.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

The Flash Flood Watch continues into the morning hours of Tuesday
as thunderstorms slowly exit the area to the southeast.


Spotter activation should not be needed through tonight. Spotters
are encouraged to report rainfall amounts over one inch to the
National Weather Service in Topeka.
