KSN Threat Tracker for Tuesday, 8/26/14

Quickcast Today NEW

10:35PM Storms will continue to produce occasional heavy rain, small hail and gusty winds overnight. In those areas with heavy rain, be alert to high water in the overnight hours.

9:50PM Tracking storms in Western Kansas with some dime to penny size hail, torrential rain, and gusty winds. While the wind and hail threat are unlikely to become severe, the rain is a concern. Since it is coming over areas that have had a good soaking in recent days, flooding could very well occur. Don’t drive in to high water! TURN AROUND DON’T DROWN! Complete storm tracking on KSN News at 10, or catch the latest radar anytime here on KSN.com.

9:03PM As mentioned just a few minutes ago, flooding is a concern with heavy rain moving across areas that have had a good soaking in recent days. A Flash Flood Warning now in effect for Greeley County in Western Kansas.

8:49PM Strongest showers and storms we have are right out along the Kansas/Colorado line, moving North. They are bringing with them heavy rain, small hail and up to 45mph wind. Since this area received some pretty heavy rain in the last couple of days, we should be alert to some flooding. Remember if you see high water, TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN!

7:57PM Showers and rumbles of thunder continue at this hour. We are tracking a few weaker showers in Central Kansas, and a little stronger storm moving North along the Kansas/Colorado line. Finally, another area is approaching Southcentral Kansas from Northern Oklahoma. None of these pose any immediate threat of severe weather, but of course we will continue to track them. You can too, of course, with the latest radar here on KSN.com.

6:40PM As clouds and showers moved into Wichita, the temperature dropped quite a bit. Now Wichita is at a milder 82 degrees (down from 90).

8:30AM Doppler radar can see more than just rain… Due to last night’s storms there are a number of outflow boundaries created in the wake of those storms… Here’s a screen capture of one moving through Wichita. The atmosphere is just like an ocean made of air. This is just like a wake left behind a big ship… In this case that big ship was a thunderstorm.
