Tornado Warning: Northern Kansas


Tornado warning in effect for the area around Natoma and Codell, Kansas.
The area threatened is just north of Hays (lower left) and Russell (lower center). The storm is nearly stationary, perhaps drifting slightly east. If Codell sounds familiar, it is the location of tornadoes on May 20, 1916, May 20, 1917 and May 20, 1918!

Also, at 8:06pm, a thunderstorm with baseball hail and 60 mph winds is moving slowly SSW in western Kansas. Dodge City circled.

I think additional storms will develop the next couple of hours with the potential for tornadoes in Kansas. The tornado (below) includes southern Nebraska but tornadoes are unlikely there for at least another hour or two.
