A weak cold front pushed south across the area on Tuesday June 4th and was accompanied by a weak mid level disturbance. Storms developed during the early afternoon hours across west-central Kansas and tracked east into the late afternoon. As they tracked east they expanded in coverage and started to track southeast. 

The strongest storms produced larger than golf ball size hail across central Kansas along with 60 to 70 mph winds as they tracked southeast. In addition, due to the high moisture content of the airmass, they also produced very high rainfall rates which resulted in pockets of flooding.
