Kansas Severe Storm Risk Area

Because so many are requesting it, here is my outline of where I believe exists the greatest risk of tornadoes, large hail and damaging thunderstorm winds after 2pm. There is no risk before 2pm in case you have errands to run, etc. 
The initial storms will form from around the Gypsum Hills toward WaKeeney and move east or east northeast from there. I believe there is little to no risk before about 4pm in the counties containing Interstate 135.

Normal advice prevails:
  • No need to worry. Just monitor the weather when thunderstorms approach. 
  • Make sure you can get your children or other dependents to shelter on relatively short notice. 
  • Put your car in the garage. 
  • Put items like trampolines and lawn furniture that can blow away in high winds inside.
  • Make sure your flashlight and radio have fresh batteries. 
I will provide additional updates later this afternoon.

I'll post on the Texas threat shortly.
