835 PM CDT Fri May 26 2017

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Central Kansas,
South Central Kansas and Southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

A complex of showers and thunderstorms may affect locations
generally along and west of the Flint Hills after midnight. A few
severe storms cannot be ruled out roughly northwest of a line from
Salina to Kingman. If storms can survive, golfball size hail and 65
mph winds will be the main threats. Strong storms with 50 to 60 mph
winds and up to nickle sized hail are possible as far east as the
Flint Hills.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

There is still considerable uncertainty as to the exact area and
timing of severe weather on Saturday. The risk will ramp up sometime
in the morning or early afternoon and persist into the afternoon or
early evening in Southeast Kansas. The severe risk is roughly along
and east of I-35, with the threat and likelihood of storms
increasing towards the southeast corner of Kansas. Depending on how
the storms evolve, the threats could include tennis ball sized hail
and 75 mph winds. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

Multiple rounds of thunderstorms are possible from Tuesday
afternoon through Thursday. Some strong storms are likely during
this period.


Spotter activation is not anticipated tonight, but may be needed
Saturday over South Central and Southeast Kansas.
