KSStorm.Info Briefing: April 11, 2022

Tomorrow will bring a wide variety of weather to Kansas. But first, a nice if somewhat breezy day after some showers exit the state to the southeast.

A cold front pushing through the southeast part of the state will bring some thunder and rain to that part of the state through mid morning.

Skies will clear west to east through the day and we’ll all have comfortable temperatures. Once the front clears the state, expect wind to shift around to the south east and pick up as moisture starts to be pulled in for tomorrow’s severe weather event.

Far northwest Kansas could see some snow from tomorrow’s event, but worst conditions are expected from eastern Colorado through the Nebraska Panhandle and Wyoming, into the Dakotas. The two focus areas for tomorrow are wind-driven grassland fires, which forecasters say could reach historic risk levels given wind up 50mph+ and humidities in western Kansas more akin to the desert southwest, in the single digits and low teens.

Focus east of K-14 turns to severe weather, with a few strong tornadoes and hail larger than 2″ possible with the stronger storms. Storms may develop on a scattered basis late afternoon just west of I-135 and move east; as they do they will encounter conditions conducive to very rapid development. Tornado concern would be highest between 6pm and 11pm, generally east of a line from Abilene to Winfield.

A complete Outlook detailing all the risks will be posted later this morning.
