Rapid Weather Changes in Kansas and Southeast Colorado

Thunderstorms developing southwest of Wichita as of 7:13pm.

Tornado Watch for southeast Colorado and southwest Kansas.

Severe Thunderstorm Watch
 for the rest of Kansas west of the Flint Hills (above). 

In both watches hail larger than 2" in diameter is forecasted along with thunderstorm-generated wind gusts to 70mph. The chance of tornadoes is higher in the tornado watch but in the severe thunderstorm watch "a tornado or two" (in the words of the NWS) is possible. 

Please monitor the weather in these areas the rest of the evening.
