  • Thursday forecast: One more day of severe weather, quiet conditions tomorrow

Most of Southwest Oklahoma braced for a round of severe weather Wednesday the first risky forecast of spring 2018 and while it got gusty and wet, most of the area survived in good shape. While storms may persist overnight, most are expected to be out of the area by 3 a.m. Thursday. The main threats are hail, damaging winds and possible isolated tornadoes.

Storms are expected in the Wichita area during the late afternoon and evening hours, with the threat of large hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes. More chances of rain & thunderstorms returns to the forecast Tuesday into Wednesday next week. Once the funnel, or the column of air, contains condensation or debris picked up along the way, it's easier to see and is what most people picture when they think of a typical tornado. "Take warnings seriously and take shelter if placed under a tornado warning", the Kansas Division of Emergency Management said on social media.

Severe Thunderstorm Watch is being peeled away this morning as round one of thunderstorms exits off to the east. This time the greatest threat has shifted into eastern Kansas (vs north-central KS yesterday) where Manhattan and Topeka are in the highest risk for severe weather. There is a moderate risk for all severe weather hazards, including hurricane-force winds, very large hail and rain-wrapped, possibly intense tornadoes.

The wind will back-off Friday with highs in the 70s under a mostly sunny sky.
