A front stalled out in Oklahoma is going to lift north as a warm front tonight and Friday afternoon. Scattered storms are still possible over central and northern Kansas tonight, but the activity should remain very isolated.
Warmer temperatures are expected statewide for Friday with a mix of sunshine and clouds. The winds are expected to be out of the southeast or south through much of the afternoon. A few showers or storms may develop south and east of Wichita Friday evening and some of the storms could be strong with large hail being the primary threat.
Saturday looks windy and warm with a chance for severe storms after 5 p.m. Storms will move to the northeast and should remain very isolated across central and eastern Kansas. Storms that do develop Saturday afternoon will have the likelihood of turning severe with hail, high winds, and isolated tornadoes possible. Stay tuned for updates into the weekend.
