The Storm Prediction Center is concerned about the developing thunderstorms in the hatched area. In addition to hail and damaging winds, they believe a tornado is possible. A tornado watch has not been issued at this time.

AccuWeather Regional Radar at 9:42pm shows the thunderstorms developing rapidly in eastern Kansas with another near Coffeyville, KS. Keep an eye on these storms during the night. 

The blue and purple are freezing rain and sleet while the deepest reds are thunderstorms with hail. Road conditions are extremely poor where hail has accumulated. For example, in Stafford Co. in central Kansas golfball-sized hail covered the ground to a depth of 2.5 inches. With the cold temperatures, the hail does not quickly melt. Minneapolis, KS, north of Salina, had a measured gust of 73 mph!

At 9:49pm, the storms west of Wichita will likely cause strong winds as they move across the city along with ice and lightning. They will move through between 10pm and midnight. 

This is truly the last update of the night. Going to sleep!
