  • After missing out on any stormy weather this weekend, meteorologists are giving us a few opportunities for a “do over.”  Showers and thunderstorms are possible tonight (primarily after 8 p.m.), however, any severe storm development is expected to stay in Southeastern Kansas. Showers and thunderstorms will again be possible across the area on Tuesday. Severe weather chances will increase on Tuesday evening, primarily for Southeastern Kansas, but potentially extending into portions of the South Central region. The primary threat for any storms that develop will be large hail up to golf ball size.
    At this point, however, more attention is being focused on Wednesday’s severe weather prospects. The Storm Prediction Center has already identified a “Moderate Risk” area, which currently includes the southeastern half of Butler County.  A strong storm system is expected to move into the area, bringing the threat of severe storms with damaging winds and large hail to areas east of the Turnpike.  Please watch for further updates on timing and positioning of this weather system…
