Much of our area has a chance for thunderstorms and, in some cases, snow later today.

We have a chance for isolated thunderstorms, though the stronger storm are expected to stay to our south, according to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Wichita.

Strong storms are possible over much of south central and southeast Kansas, with severe storms are possible along and south of the Oklahoma border, NWS noted. The storms are expected to develop late this afternoon and persist into the evening. The primary threats are 50 to 60 mph and nickel to quarter sized hail.

Snow is forecast to develop in western Kansas this afternoon and spread into central Kansas this evening. Amounts from a trace to half inch are expected around Great Bend and Russell, with very isolated amounts of around an inch possible. The higher totals are expected from north of Concordia to around Hays.
