Storms developed during the late afternoon hours on Wednesday May 26th  over Central Kansas near a warm front.  A very moist and unstable air mass was in place which allowed storms to rapidly become severe, producing hail up to baseball size along with a few brief tornadoes. The strongest tornado caused some damage across far northern Rice county.  These same storms also produced very heavy rainfall which lead to some flooding.
