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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon, first over
central Kansas, then eventually across south-central and southeast
Kansas. At this time, the greatest risk of severe weather looks to
be focused along and south of a line from Hutchinson to Cassoday.
Across that area, large hail up to hen egg size, damaging winds of
60 to 75 mph, and a few tornadoes will be possible. North of that
line, wind gusts of 50 to 60 mph and hail up to half dollar size
will be possible.

In addition to the severe weather threat, flash flooding will be a
concern, especially areas that see repeated thunderstorms through
tonight.

Rivers and creeks remain high and may approach flood stage. Please
refer to the latest river statements for details.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Scattered thunderstorms may continue across Southeast Kansas
on Wednesday. Strong or severe storms are not expected.

Scattered thunderstorms remain possible for all areas from Thursday
night through Sunday. The greatest severe thunderstorm potential
looks to affect the region on Saturday. Please watch for further
updates.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be needed across much of the region for this
afternoon through the late evening hours.
