A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 11:00 this evening for part of north central and northeast Kansas. The main threat from storms in this area will be hail up to golf ball size and winds to 70 mph. There is still a slight chance for some isolated storms over south central and southeast Kansas this evening. The storms will be helped along by a cold front that have been moving eastward today. Behind the front we will have a few days with near normal temperatures (mid 80s) and less humidity. There is a chance for some isolated thunderstorms both Tuesday night and Wednesday night. Temperatures will return to the 90s over most of the state from Friday through the weekend.
