Severe Thunderstorm and Tornado Update

At 3:47pm, the radar showed the strong storms in the Flint Hills moving rapidly northeast. These storms produced half-dollar size hail in west Wichita and quite a bit of wind damage just west and northwest of the city. The severe thunderstorm watch (see posting below) is still in effect. 


The way these things are scored, a 5% chance is a significant probability of tornadoes. The Storm Prediction Center has increased that area by quite a bit since this morning from the Ark-La-Tex to the Texas Hill Country. These tornadoes could be after dark. 
I'll keep posting periodically. Keep up on the local weather if you live in these areas.
