Giant Hail and Damaging Winds Possible
Here is the longer-term forecast I promised:
This watch, which includes Wichita, Kansas City, Enid and Butler, MO represents, in my opinion, a bit more serious threat than most. I would not surprise me to see instances of hailstones ≥ 3" in diameter driven by high winds -- a situation that can cause a great deal of damage and pose a safety threat.
There is also a risk of a tornado or two, especially in south central and parts of southeast Kansas.
Please keep up on the latest weather information if you live in the blue area above.
