Threat Tracker 2

9:57PM Time for KSN News at 10 and we’re glad to tell you that we are tracking storms with just rain–no threat of severe weather. This includes rain in the Wichita metro area. Tune in now and we’ll track it all for you. Or catch up with the latest radar here on KSN.com.

8:50PM Scattered showers and storms moving across Kansas this evening. No severe weather is anticipated, though the stronger storms still have the potential to produce some gusty 50mph winds. In addition, some of the rain is very heavy and localized flooding is still possible. We are continuing to track the storms–and you can follow along anytime with the latest radar right here on KSN.com.

7:56PM Continuing to track quite a few showers and storms across Kansas–but none severe as of this writing. Storms will produce very heavy rain, and could also produce small hail and gusty winds. The rain in some areas is heavy enough for long enough to cause localized flooding. So remember, if you encounter high water, TURN AROUND DON’T DROWN.

7:30PM Warnings allowed to expire for Russell and Barton Counties. We continue to track storms. You can follow along with the latest radar here on KSN.com.

7:24PM Strong storms continue in Russell and Barton Counties. 50-60mph winds possible. And, we can’t completely rule out a weak tornado–so be alert to rapidly changing conditions.

6:54PM Brief weak tornado reported in Milberger in Russell County. Tractors flipped and some windows broken. Be alert to changing conditions.

6:52PM Couple of Severe Thunderstorm Warnings out for Russell and Barton Counties. Chief threat will be 50-60mph wind. Remember that other storms in Northcentral and even Northwest Kansas could also produce cold air funnels–as discussed below usually not a major threat.

5:54PM Coming on KSN News at 6, we’ll track showers and storms that mostly well-behaved in Kansas–though as noted below we have had reports of cold air funnels in Northcentral Kansas. Join us for the latest, or check the radar here anytime.

5:42PM It is possible we could see some cold air funnels with storms in Northcentral and Northwest Kansas. Cold air funnels very rarely touch down, and on those rare occasions when they do they are weak circulations. We will continue to track the storms and monitor conditions.
