Watching for severe weather...

Did you notice the humidity in the air today? If you have lived in the Heartland long, you know that springtime plus humidity can equal severe thunderstorms. We will have a threat for severe thunderstorms Wednesday night and again Thursday afternoon. There are still several questions for Thursday afternoon's round of storms, mainly centered around available sunshine in the afternoon. If we see plentiful sunshine in the afternoon, we have a very good chance for severe weather. Large hail would be the biggest threat, but any boundries left over from Wednesday night's thunderstorms could be the focus for possible tornadoes.

At the time I'm posting this, the Storm Prediction Center has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for northeast Kansas hinting that hail could get up to 3 inches in diameter. Keep up-to-date with the weather Thursday afternoon. Here is a graphic from the Storm Prediction Center of the current severe weather watches.
