TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — State emergency management officials are monitoring a storm system that is expected to bring large hail, damaging winds and the possibility of tornadoes. Forecasters say the system is expected to form Wednesday afternoon in southeastern Kansas and expand to the north and west throughout the evening. The Kansas Division of Emergency Management said in a news release that severe thunderstorms may last through Thursday. Hail the size of baseballs is possible in south-central Kansas, and winds gusts of 60 to 70 mph are forecast for south-central and southeastern parts of the state. The system also brings the possibility of isolated tornadoes. In western parts of the state, fire is a danger because of dry, windy conditions. The forecast comes one day after a tornado touched down briefly in southeastern Kansas.
