9:51PM Showers are wrapped up so now we turn our attention to helping you make your holiday weekend plans. There will be some great weather–and a threat of severe weather. Tune in now to KSN News at 10 for the latest. Or check in any time here on KSN.com.

8:09PM Dying sprinkles and showers for now, except in Kay County, OK, where there is still some good rain. In the meantime, the first part of our holiday weekend is looking pretty good. But Sunday could be a different matter. We are under an elevated risk for severe weather. The greatest chance of strong storms for the KSN viewing area seems to be late in the afternoon on into Sunday night. So much of Sunday could be pretty good–but you will need to have a way to keep in touch even out and enjoying holiday fun.  Here’s a great way–follow our Twitter severe weather feed for your part of Kansas:


6:23PM Very spotty showers and thundershowers in Southcentral and Northwestern Kansas, along with Northcentral Oklahoma. Severe weather not anticipated and storms will have a tough time as the sun sets. Sunday could be a different matter as you can see:

2:30PM We have a nice breeze in Wichita with temperatures in the 80s. We are keeping a close eye on redevelopment of storms late this afternoon in central Kansas. Strong winds, small, and locally heavy rainfall will be possible with any storms that do form. You can track it on radar right here. 

12:00PM Join us now on KSN News at Noon… we’ll show you how rain will impact your holiday weekend.

11:25AM A cold front will continue to march east across the region. We will be watching for showers and storms to redevelop along this boundary, mainly in eastern Kansas…. so we will have to keep weak rain chances in the forecast for this afternoon although it will not be a washout. There may be a few lingering storms in the viewing area tonight but most of the activity should stay in Oklahoma and Missouri.
