As you can see with Saturday's outlook (top graphic), the area of most concern is west of Wichita, especially in that area of northwest Kansas and southwest Nebraska. Thunderstorms should develop in the late afternoon, with large hail, high winds and a few tornadoes possible. That's not to say thunderstorms won't form in southwest Kansas and Oklahoma (yellow area) but the activity may be more isolated in nature. The focus of attention should shift into eastern Kansas on Sunday (bottom graphic). Just like Saturday, large hail, high winds and a few tornadoes will be possible.
This weekend will be busy again with commencement ceremonies (various high schools and universities too, like KU). You may be so busy that weather is the last thing on your mind. I hope you'll take a moment to download our free Storm Team 12 Weather app, which is available for Android and Apple devices. Bookmark this blog too! As you may have noticed, I've added many features and graphics to it over the last couple of weeks. We'll use all of our media platforms here at KWCH to keep you informed this weekend.
