What We’re Tracking:
- Strong to severe storms this evening
- Morning rain Thursday and cooler
- Breezy and becoming warmer Friday into Easter weekend
As we head into the evening hours, chances for severe storms will start to increase. The sun is still peaking through in some areas but the clouds are continuing to increase throughout the area as well.
Again, rain chances start to increase as we head into the evening rush hour, more specifically around the 6 o’clock hour as this system starts to develop.
Counties in our southeast portion of the viewing area are at a higher risk of these severe thunderstorms with a chance of some isolated thunderstorms developing for a few of our northern/northwestern counties.
What to expect:
The biggest threat with this system seems to be large hail and/or damaging wind so keep that in mind with any activities planned for tonight.
These storms will continue to move on through into midnight and potentially even linger a little longer past then. Once this system moves through, temperatures will really start to cool down with highs struggling only getting up into the upper 50s with some areas close to 60° for you Thursday with partly cloudy skies.
That cooler air will stick with us as we close out the week on Friday and even on into the holiday weekend with highs again reaching the lower 60s for Friday and Saturday with temperatures jumping up into the middle 70s for Easter Sunday. More sunshine will start to appear for your Friday and will continue to see an increase of sunshine this weekend along with another chance of scattered showers for Sunday and we will continue to keep an eye on that.
As severe weather season is upon us here in the great plains be sure to continue to check our KSNT News website along with our KSNT Storm Track Weather App for the most up-to-date forecast as we continue to track these storm chances coming up.
