A fast moving storm system is plowing across Kansas Monday afternoon Rockies cranking-up gusty winds in excess of 50 mph and producing blizzard conditions for the extreme northwest corner of our state.
Eastern portions of Kansas will see widely scattered rain showers and a few isolated strong or severe thunderstorms. Quarter-size hail and wind gusts over 65 mph will be the main threats around Wichita, Hutchinson, Salina, Kingman, Wellington, El Dorado, Marion, Howard and Sedan.
Our chances for rain/snow will end Monday evening behind the quick hitting storm system.
Tuesday looks mild with highs in the 50s under partly cloudy skies along with lighter winds.
Gusty winds and very warm temps will return Wednesday as afternoon highs soar into the mid to upper-60s!
