Storm Track 3 Forecast: Isolated severe today, unsettled into the weekend

Storms were isolated to start and now clustering together on its march farther east into the first half of Thursday.

On Thursday, there is a Marginal Risk a storm or two reaches severe thresholds basically along and east of the Turnpike.  Damaging winds and hail are primary concerns before we get a break on Friday.

That said, Friday evening after 7 PM, new thunderstorms and rain will move into the northwest corner of Kansas.  This tracks east/southeast across the state into Saturday morning.  A storm or two could produce brief gusty winds and small hail.

Another system gels to the south of us on Saturday.  Some rain and storms may fire across southern Kansas, but the bulk of the energy and moisture stays in Oklahoma and Texas.

We may gain a few more raindrops on Sunday out of this wave before we anticipate another round of severe weather early next week.  Strong to severe storms are possible especially across central and eastern Kansas next Monday afternoon through the evening.

We will need to watch this system closely.

Once it departs by Tuesday, we are looking at a quieter stretch when it comes to severe storms. Temperatures look comfortable once the cold front tracks across the state early in the workweek.
