National Weather Service Wichita KS
728 AM CDT Tue Sep 19 2017

728 AM CDT Tue Sep 19 2017

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Central Kansas,
South Central Kansas and Southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

South winds will increase into the 25 to 35 mph range with gusts to
around 45 mph this afternoon across much of central and south
central Kansas. See the latest wind advisory bulletin for details.

Temperatures will be above normal and relative humidities will be
low enough to bring the fire danger into the very high category this
afternoon along and west of I-35. Barton and Russell counties will
be very close to extreme values this afternoon as well.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Wednesday afternoon through early Thursday morning will have a
chance for some isolated thunderstorms. The strongest storms will
have the potential for small hail and winds up to 50 mph.

Warm and breezy conditions will return Thursday afternoon and bring
the fire danger back up into the very high category. This very high
fire danger is expected along and west of K-14.

Chances for thunderstorms should gradually increase from the west
Sunday through Monday. Current indications suggest the potential
for multiple rounds of storms, with an accompanying risk of severe
weather, heavy rain and possible flooding. There remains quite a bit
of uncertainty, so stay tuned.


Spotter activation is not anticipated today or tonight.
