Possible Severe Weather Headed Toward Eastern Kansas

There’s a potential for severe weather in eastern Kansas Monday night and Tuesday. Emily Heller, with the National Weather Service in Topeka, says overnight storms could include hail and high winds. She says that will be followed by more powerful storms that could also bring tornadoes.

“The main show actually will be tomorrow (Tuesday) afternoon and into the evening. We do have a chance for some strong to severe storms across the entire area,” says Heller.

Heller says the most powerful storms will include tornadoes, high winds and especially large hail.

“And as soon as we become uncapped and we have some storms and they can start growing we will probably see some strong updrafts. That hail will stay up in the clouds for a while and we could see probably anywhere from golf balls to baseballs,” says Heller.
Heller says to watch for sever weather warnings and be ready to take shelter if necessary.
