Storms expected Monday afternoon

Late Monday afternoon the National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center upgraded a large area of Central Kansas, including the Salina area, into an enhanced risk.

Tuesday will be another warm and humid day with highs again in the upper 80s. Storms Tuesday night will continue with a hail and wind potential, but a tornado can not be ruled out. This means numerous severe storms are expected in this area with more persistent and widespread activity.

AccuWeather reports following isolated damaging storms Monday night, there will be a heightened risk of risky storms across the central and southern Plains late Tuesday into Wednesday. The initial threat will be west of Tulsa, but storms may arrive later that evening with a continued threat of strong to severe storms re-firing on Friday. South wind 10 to 20 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 30 miles per hour. However, a multi-day storm event is likely later this week and severe weather is nearly assuredly in the mix. A possible severe thunderstorm watch will need to be issued if they hold together. Wind: S 15-25; gusty.

The Des Moines Metro looks to remain dry, but a few isolated cells may redevelop off some outflow of the complex of storms discussed previous.
